How-To: Animated GPS Cycling Route Map

Instructables user Ossum writes:

I always record GPS traces of my cycle expeditions, as well as often recording videos, so when I go somewhere interesting I like to combine the two when I get back home. After coming across Stamen’s beautiful watercolour maps, I knew that I had found the missing ingredient. My process now is twofold, I use a Python script to retrieve the map and plot the GPS trace to an image, then I overlay and animate the images in a video editor. I have tried to write a guide that will be easy to follow for both the novice python programmer as well as the novice video editor.
