Minecraft Mappers

Map rendering tools, known as mappers, allow you to create an overhead visual of your entire world within the game. The visual appearance is very similar to that of an RTS game, and can allow you to really show-off your world in full, with just one picture. This type of program is commonly used by server admins, who wish to render their server's map for players to view.

Currently, there are a variety of different mapper programs available to choose from. However, not all of them are updated to work with the latest version of minecraft, below you find the ones that are compatible with 1.3.1 and 1.2.5.
