Hi guys,

I am working on an animation which contains few shapes within a country map and these shapes need to expand in order to indicate coverage of our company service. Shapes are circles and they need to cover 80% of map.

What technique would be the best and also can you help me find a relevant tutorial for this please?

Are the shapes part of the map? or something that you added after the fact with a blending mode or lower opacity? If its the latter, just keyframe the scale, and add a bezier to it. If it is part of the map layer, duplicate, mask the parts that need to expand, and then scale that up. It won't look as great, but hey, it works.
