Full-Screen Map

By pressing the full-screen map key (by default, the J key), you can open the full-screen map.


The full-screen map is a scrollable, customisable view of everything you’ve explored in your world so far. It provides access to a myriad of options which will be covered below, but you can also customize it in the full-screen settings.

Basic Usage

Once you have the full-screen map open, you can scroll and zoom, or use the buttons around the edge of the screen to change various options and access different parts of the mod, including the settings. Here are the basic controls:

  • Click and drag the map to scroll around
  • Use the mouse wheel to change the zoom level
  • Double-click on a block to create a waypoint

The following keybinds are available, and they may be changed in Minecraft’s options:

  • C Copy the coordinates of the block your cursor is pointing at to the chat box
  • B Create a waypoint at the block your cursor is pointing at
  • O Open JourneyMap’s settings manager


Around the edge of the full-screen map is a set of buttons, which you can use to customize the full-screen map view and access other areas of the mod. Icons can differ between themes; the below icons come from the themes that are bundled with JourneyMap.
