elevatr: Access Elevation Data from Various APIs

Several web services are available that provide access to elevation data. This package provides access to many of those services and returns elevation data either as an 'sf' simple features object from point elevation services or as a 'raster' object from raster elevation services. In future versions, 'elevatr' will drop support for 'raster' and will instead return 'terra' objects. Currently, the package supports access to the Amazon Web Services Terrain Tiles <https://registry.opendata.aws/terrain-tiles/>, the Open Topography Global Datasets API <https://opentopography.org/developers/>, and the USGS Elevation Point Query Service <https://apps.nationalmap.gov/epqs/>.
