2d scatter plot with ellipse

Id like to create a scatter plot using ellipses instead of circles, stars, etc. The ellipses need to be centered on a specific x,y, and have their major/minor axis defined individually for each ellipse, also the ellipse needs to be able to be rotated on an individual basis. It don’t see any examples of this for plotly.js specifically, is there a way to create this plot?

Not using a scatter trace. You can always resort to using layout shapes like this example.

Is there a convenient way to rotate layout shapes?

I think what @sbaile30 was asking is adding confidence ellipse on the scatter plot, i.e. https://www.researchgate.net/post/How_to_draw_a_95_confidence_ellipse_to_an_XY_scatter_plot2.

Is it currently available? If not, can this feature be considered?

All I’m really trying to do here is put a geoJSON polygon shape on an orthographic map without the use of mapbox.
