Powermap equivalent for R?

#1
I was blown away by Excel 365's Powermap capabilities: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoeL3_5M2zA

They change the map's projection on the fly, with data displayed! Plus the animation, smooth zooming etc... but anyway, I was looking for something in R that would simply let me plot bars on a map. The closest I found was this or this. Both of which are a bit cumbersome (couldn't get the second example to run at all), and definitely don't have the look I was going for. Is there anything in R that allows for plots like that?

Thanks for looking!
