Minecraft players can create a copy of their map that other players can use by placing it on a cartography table. If a user doesn’t have a cartography table, he can craft it using the following ingredients:

  • 2 Paper
  • 4 Planks (any type)

One can also find a cartography table inside a cartographer’s home in a village. However, it’s a relatively complex way and highly recommended to craft by farming some materials.

After crafting a cartography table, place the map that you want to copy on the upper slot of the cartography table and a blank one at the bottom. Finally, it will start copying everything from the first map on the blank piece of the map. Once done, you can share it with other players to share information.

The player who takes your copied map will be able to see everything you’ve added to it. However, you can’t update anything after making a copy. In order to make any change, you’ll need to follow the above process again.
