Re: draping image across topo image

They would probably have to be QT files for the movie files (if there are any, and Photoshop or PNG or TIFF files (anything that can support an alpha channel, I just find those are the most widely used) and I would use a motion path on the icon (or what ever you want to move along the topo line) and edit the motion path with a b-spline and if you wanted a feel of following the icon (as opposed to a static overhead of the image) I would create that effect by creating a camera layer and using a camera motion path as well.

I am not sure how the 3D topo map will work with motion though or if there is a better file format to keep the 3D of your topo map. Someone will have to help you with that particular question.
