In mcpe No compass Needed to make map BUT YOU NEED TO FORGE THE MAP WITH THE COMPASS IN THE ANVIL TO MAKE YOUR ICON BE IN THE Maps so you know where you are and Know where's other are and get back home easily

You get an anvil place down and get a piece of paper that's made out of sugar and get a compass that's iron and redstone and put them in the anvil and there's your map

I think that you need a pic of your world, a compass and paper. You just need to know how to combine the items.
I don't know how to get a pic of my world or how to combine the items. Someone help please

Guys, do you know the COMPASS? It points to your spawnpoint...from there, you find your house.

I found ink in a chest, I have tons of paper and a compass... There is no map icon. Sorry everyone. But it is helpful to know that the compass will direct you back to your first spawn location.

How does it direct you back is it a certain direction
Guest said: 7th Jun 2015 | REPORT
Your first spawn point is magnetic north. So the compass always points to it.
Guest said: 24th Feb 2016 | REPORT
You have to use anvil to combine the map and the compass

No mod or glitch is needed to make a map.
Map:
Go on Survival mode and get Redstone Dust and 4 pieces of Iron Ingot.
Then get a crafting table and make a compass.
Get lots of sugar cane and make 8 pieces of paper.
Go to your crafting table and you will be able to make a map.
Crafting Table:
Get 1 Block of Wood.
Go into your Inventory.
Turn the Wood into Wooden Planks.
Turn the planks into a Crafting table
Hope this was helpful

Sorry, it seems you can't craft maps in PE. The next best thing is to build landmarks to help you remember where stuff is. I built a giant Triforce out of glowstone in front of my house Smile

Try using torchers and sign board I do this on pe whenever I go exploring just putting trail of torches on way to your house use sing board if you encounter fork caves and digging too depth that would work

Very few people actually answered the original question. You can NOT make maps in Pocket Edition Minecraft. In all other versions you can, but not PE.
I tried to build a rail system to the village and couldn't figure out how to make a map in PE, looked it up and unfortunately it not coded into the game yet. No particular reason like some of these golf balls said, "it's too small and easy to explore, yadda yadda... "
But that's not true. It's simply not coded into the game yet.
