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

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.

Upgrading with an anvil:

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

Trivia

  • It is 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, but only 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.
  • To view the contents of a map on iOS, the player needs to toggle to the first person view.
  • When maps are zoomed out, they will not overlap with other maps at the same zoom level. This helps aligning maps.
