Cartography tables can generate naturally inside cartographer houses in villages.
From block loot
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 Edition only]|
|Paper||Compass||Empty Locator map[Bedrock Edition only]|
Note that zooming out a map always starts with an already created map, not a blank map. Zooming it out clears the image but leaves the map aligned to the grid that would include the area of the original map. If you want to build a set of maps such as for a map wall, you can't just create a bunch of level 0 (base) maps at one location then zoom them out before going out into the world to fill them in, you need to start with a base map that you created in each area that will be covered by the zoomed out map. See more discussion of map alignment at Map.

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.
