Could you please confirm if Makie can do the following:

Let T(x) be the ground temperature at point x along a path between New York and Paris. Can we plot, say, 100 km of T(x) and have a scrollbar/slider to move quickly between the two endpoints 5800 km apart.

Note that this seems to be different from panning, which is slower / more painful.

Plotly lets you zoom to an area of your chart and then drag the area to the left or right. That is called panning. There may be other backends that let you do that.
