Empty Locator Map Paper +
Compass











When you first create a map, it is blank. Hold the empty map and press use item to transform the empty map into a map item which gradually begins filling with information as you travel around the inside borders of it.

This variation is called an "empty locator map"[Bedrock Edition only] or "empty map"[Java and Legacy Console editions only]

Empty Map Paper

Maps crafted without a compass will not show location markers. Markers can be added later by combining the map with a compass on an anvil or crafting table. This variation is called an "empty map".
