Could you do this in MapKnitter.org? Or do you mean the basemap would need to be rotated too?

Yes, the main issue is the basemap rotation...

That's a tough one -- I think you could look around on http://leafletjs.com -- i'm sure it's been done -- and potentially modify Leaflet.DistortableImage with that code: https://github.com/publiclab/Leaflet.DistortableImage/

Sorry it's not easier but it's not part of the featureset for MapKnitter, but it seems possible with some customization!

Hi, Thanks :-) I didn't find yet in leaflet's libraries but will keep looking there and in other places.
