I think this is probably less of a question for video production people as much as it is for Geographic Information Systems (GIS) people. GIS Forum on Stack Exchange While you might be able to find an After Effects (AE) wizard who knows some scripting tricks to make this happen, my guess is more folks over in a GIS forum know how to do this in something ...
There are a lot of answers regarding open source on this answer: Good open source Video Editors? If you specifically target Linux I'd suggest Lightworks or Kdenlive. Lightworks isn't open source yet but is announced to be after the mac release is finished. Both a great option for video editing under Linux and fullfill your requirements. Lightworks has only ...
