For a isometric view you'll need to set the view and projection
matrices.  I don't have an OSG example of doing an isometric view but
it shouldn't be hard.  The Camera set up for a map view will be
something like:

    osg::BoundingSphere bs = scenegraph->getBound();
    double r = bs.radius();
    view->getCamera()->setProjectionMatrixAsOrtho(-r, r, -r, r, -r, r);
0.0, r), bs.center(), osg::Vec3d(0.0, 1.0, 1.0));
