e_globe family is similar to e_geo_3d e_map, or e_map_3d.

Note: As the package became too large (borderline for CRAN), assets have been moved to another package: echarts4r.assets. This also allows the introduction of more assets.

Deprecated:

  • e_stars_texture
  • e_globe_texture
  • e_map_texture
