As far as I searched, I couldn't find any library for drawing 3d world charts. The first answer at this post shows a workaround using a pst-map3d package. Isn't it possible to get similar result using tikz?

    I just did a google picture search for site:tex.stackexchange.com tikz world map and got e.g. tex.stackexchange.com/a/183138/121799 and many more. How about you do this search, click on promising pics, select the one that comes closest to your needs, start modifying it and if you get stuck use that as an MWE? – marmot Nov 17 at 16:25
  • Hi, @marmot. I found that amazing picture too. I specifically want to draw the spherical Earth but need to be able to rotate it to show specific continents. – Brasil Nov 17 at 17:45
  • Yes, but in this answer it is explicitly written: "You can repeat the same steps starting from commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:BlankMap-World6.svg to get a World map." Did you try this? – marmot Nov 17 at 17:46
  • This world map is 2d. I need a 3d one. – Brasil Nov 17 at 17:50
  • Yet @samcarter shared this with me. (I did not check whether this is done somewhere, but I also feel that you should be the one who searches for previous related answers, select the most promising one, try to modify them to your needs, and if you get stuck a ask a more specific question. Of course, you might be lucky and someone does everything for you, but there is no guarantee.) – marmot Nov 17 at 17:55
