First Appearance

Update 0.14.0

Maps are items that were added to Minecraft Pocket Edition in Update 0.14.0. They are used to create a visual image of the world and to pinpoint the Player's location and coordinates.

Crafting

  • Paper => 1 Empty Map
  • 8 Paper + 1 Compass => 1 Empty Map with indicator
  • Map + 8 paper = Zoomed out map
  • Map + Empty map = 2 identical maps

Usage

Maps are empty when Crafted, and are gradually drawn as the Player explores with the map equipped in their inventory. Maps can also include an indicator which shows the Player's location (and direction) in real time. Other players can also be seen, if they are within distance of the map. Maps can also be displayed in item frames.

Map Sizes

There are 5 map sizes in Minecraft PE:

  • The basic map (zoom level 0) has a size of 128 x 128 blocks.
  • The zoom level 1 map has a size of 256 x 256 blocks.
  • The zoom level 2 map has a size of 512 x 512 blocks.
  • The zoom level 3 map has a size of 1024 x 1024 blocks.
  • The zoom level 4 map has a size of 2048 x 2048 blocks.

Trivia

  • Maps are useful to survey the surface terrain since it displays visible overview Blocks.
  • A map is held with two hands in first person view.
  • When creating maps in the Nether, the created maps will show nothing except a black void and the Bedrock layer of the Nether.
    • While holding a map that is created in the Nether and enhanced with a compass, the Player's indicator will start spinning everywhere.
  • When maps are zoomed out, they will not overlap with other maps at the same zoom level. This helps aligning maps.
