This Minecraft tutorial demonstrates with screenshots and detailed instructions how to use a cartography table to enlarge a map.
In Minecraft, there are different sizes of maps. The cartography table can be used to increase the size of your map. Lets explore how to do this.
The following resources can be used in Minecraft to enlarge a map using a cartography table:
Steps to Create Different Sized Maps
You must first create a locator map using eight sheets of paper and one compass. You can use this kind of map to see where you are and where your friends who have joined your world are. The map begins as a Level 0 map, which is the game’s smallest size that can be created.
This map should appear something like this when you first open it:
You can make out who you are (the white dot) and which way you are facing. Currently, we are facing south on the map, which is down.
Upgrade the Map to Level 1
You must upgrade your map from Level 0 to Level 1 in order to increase the size. To do this, assemble the Level 0 map and an additional 8 sheets of paper in a 3×3 crafting grid.
Now that the new map has been created, it will be upgraded to a Level 1 map that is bigger than the prior one. This map won’t be entirely complete when you first open it.
To fill in the details, you will need to travel throughout the world.
Upgrade the Map to Level 2
You must upgrade your map from Level 1 to Level 2 in order to make it even bigger. To the 3×3 crafting grid, incorporate the Level 1 map and 8 more sheets of paper.
The freshly created map has been expanded and is now a Level 2 map.
Only a portion of the map will be filled in when you first open it.
Upgrade the Map to Level 3
You must upgrade your map from Level 2 to Level 3 in order to make it even bigger. To do this, increase the 3×3 crafting grid’s size by 8 and add the Level 2 map.
Now that the new map has been created, it will be upgraded to a Level 3 map, which is bigger than the previous one.
There will be even more space to fill in than the previous size when you open this map.
Upgrade the Map to Level 4
You must level up your map from level 3 to level 4 in order to get it to the largest size. To the 3×3 crafting grid, add the Level 3 map and 8 more sheets of paper.
Now that the newly created map has been upgraded to Level 4, the largest map size in Minecraft, it will be used.
This map takes very long time to fill in. Here is how our Level 4 map appears after being filled in.
You are the white dot on the map, and your friends are the other colored dots that surround you. You can literally watch the players move around in the game on the map as they move around the world, as the player dots on the map will show their current location.
Congratulations, you’ve just discovered how to make maps of various sizes in Minecraft.
How To Expand Maps In Minecraft
How do you make a Minecraft map bigger?
The cartography table can also make an existing map larger. Simply insert an already opened map into one of the slots on the left and some paper into the slots to create a larger map. The items on the left will be consumed when you click the output, revealing a larger version of the map. You can do this up to four times.

Maps can be zoomed out to represent up to 2048×2048 blocks (16 square blocks per pixel, 128×128 chunks), which is higher than the standard representation of 128×128 blocks (1 block per pixel, 8×8 chunks).
