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

Usage

Maps are empty when crafted, but are gradually drawn as the player explores the world. Maps also include a pinpointer which shows the Player's location 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 pinpointer
  • Map + 8 paper = Zoomed out map
  • Map + Empty map = 2 identical maps

Trivia

  • While held in the player's hand, a map will gradually draw itself as the player explores the world.
  • It is useful to survey the surface terrain since it displays visible overview blocks.
  • A map is held with two hands.
  • Version Exclusive: Until PC crafting is added, maps start zoomed out.
  • When creating maps in the Nether, the created maps will show nothing, but only a black void: the top 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.
