How about using a 'hover' instead of an animation?

This would stop 'headaches and distractions' but still provide extra information in less space.


I don't understand the hover concept could you post an example.

Are you talking about a scrolling marquee?

No, but all it means is that if you move your cursor over a certain point on a map, the legend will appear. Whilst this is a nice option, it also goes against one of the points that nobodies made about the flashing legend that all info needs to be displayed at all times.
