|This feature is exclusive to Java Edition, Bedrock Edition and PlayStation 4 Edition.|
Cartography tables can generate naturally inside cartographer houses in villages.
A cartography table can be obtained with anything, including the player's hand. However, it's quicker when mined with an axe.
Cartography tables are used for cloning, expanding, locking (making them unable to be explored further), and zooming out maps. Cartography tables can also be used for adding pointers to maps, creating empty maps and renaming maps.[Bedrock Edition only]
Below is a list of the recipes available with the cartography table:
|First slot||Second slot||Result|
|Map||Paper||Expanded map + Cleared|
|Map||Empty map||Cloned map|
|Map||Glass Pane||Locked map|
|Map||Compass||Locator map[Bedrock Edition only]|
|Empty map||Compass||Empty Locator map[Bedrock Edition only]|
|Paper||Empty map[Bedrock and PlayStation 4 editions only]|
|Paper||Compass||Empty Locator map[Bedrock Edition only]|
A cartography table can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 1.5 items per block.
If a village has a cartography table that has not been claimed by a villager, any nearby villager who hasn't chosen a job site block has a chance to change their profession to cartographer.
