I wish to add the ability to zoom-in, zoom-out, rotate and move the view in a top-down view over a collection of points and lines in a large 2d map. I split the map into a grid so I only need to render the points that are 'near' the camera. My question is, how do I render a point A(Xp,Yp) assuming the following details:
Offset of the camera pov from the origin of the map is:
Meaning the camera center is positioned on top of that point. If there's a point in Xc, Yc it is positioned in the center of the screen.
The rotation angle is:
The scale is:
Read my answer first. I am thinking there is more optimized solution, thanks.

Meaning if I am performing the same linear function on a lot of items, I can do it all at once if I use Shaders correctly and save processing time.
Does anyone know how that is accomplished?
Here is a sample of what I mean:
