Maps are as valuable as their uses. Whether you want to display your build area or use it as direction, maps are easy to craft, no matter how skilled of a player you are. They’re especially helpful early on in a Minecraft world before you’re able to get a beacon or elytra. This is our guide to creating an empty map in Minecraft!

When you’re ready to fill in the map, go to the area you want and right click with the map in your hand!
