That's essentially just a slide show in video format. You can export multiple mage frames to video from a lot of different apps. PowerPoint can publish slides to video. You can do this with Flash. If your maps are in ArcGIS you can export an animation from there. There is probably a plugin for QGIS as well.

 

AI will export to flash as well: https://helpx.adobe....lash_animations

 

And you can make a GIF out of your slides from Photoshop: http://www.digitaltr...n-animated-gif/

Thank You for response. I was thinking about export few (dozens?) of images to video. 

 

What if I want to attain an effect like "spreading" the region instead just appearing a new territory ?

If you're talking about the dynamic change from one shape to another (as opposed to just filling in more and more of the colors), that process is called "tweaning" (or "tweening"). It's an animation process that smoothly changes the shape of vectors between two end points. I've done a little of it in Flash, I think there are probably other tools for this as well. But I don't know the specifics. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

Correct. The spreading effect seems not common in just one single GIS application. Flash or the other animation tool could implement the idea.

You can animate features in ArcGIS using the animation toolbar, but for professional results you might want to look into Adobe After Effects.
