Question animating a map route???

i'm trying to animate a route i've followed and am wondering how to even start something like this?
if anyone has seen either LONG WAY DOWN, LONG WAY ROUND or BY ANY MEANS they always start each episode with a large map and a little arrow traces the route they followed and it keeps the arrow bit centered at all times.

i would like to reproduce that.
currently i'll be tracing the route by hand but it would be cool to add GPS data and have the program do it all for you but maybe that is asking too much
is it done with PS, FLASH or another animation program?
any help is appreciated, thanks!

ps, i'm using winXP PRO SP3
win7 Ultimate 64bit /// 2 x 24" LG Monitors /// Intel Core i7 920 with Xigmatek HDT-S1283 /// ASUS P6T WS PRO /// 12gigs of OCZ Gold XTC Triple Channel 6x2gig DDR3 1333MHz PC12800 /// XFX Nvidia GTX 260 core 216 /// Corsair TX750W /// Cooler Master 690 /// HDD Total = FIVE TB
