Is there a way to get the Maps, Backgrounds and Animatics in the iMovie 11 browser  into FCPX or do I have to load my footage into iMovie 11 and use the Maps, etc. browser and then import the project into FCPC which seems like a lot of effort.?

    No.

    most of these 'pictures' are highly complex, tiny 'mini-apps', which calculate the final output.

     

    Create your map in iMovie, export it 'with Quicktime' using proRes and you instantly can use it in FCPX.

     

    and, btw, you find a few of iM's backgrounds in FCPX too, under Generators, e.g. the popular Red Curtain.
