An Exploration Map is an item added as part of The Exploration Update. It marks nearby locations where treasure can be found in the Overworld. The exploration map comes in two varieties: Woodland and Ocean, which depict either land or underwater environments depending on the variety of the Map.


Exploration maps can be purchased from Cartographer Villagers by trading Emeralds and a Compass.

  • Ocean Map:
    (12–20) +
  • Woodland Map:
    (16-28) +


  • The Woodland map shows the player where a Woodland Mansion is located; however, it only shows the direction and distance, based on pointer location and size, respectively.
  • The Ocean map is similar to the Woodland map except that Ocean maps show Ocean Monument locations instead of Woodland Mansion locations.
