ImageToMap X 1.4 - Windows .zip
ImageToMap X 1.4 - Windows .7z
ImageToMap X 1.4 - Linux64 .tar.gz

GitHub (source code) I would be very happy if you took a look on the source code and helped me continue develop ImageToMap. The code has a GPLv3 license. More information is located in the README file in the repository.

Every time a version number in this post doesn't include the letter X it's referring to an older version before ImageToMap X. For example, 1.0 is referring to the update in August 2011 and X 1.0 to the update in January 2013.

I can't do anything about the bugs specific to Windows, but I'll try to redirect them to WildN00b (he who made the Windows port).
Thank you WildN00b!

Thanks to Openf1rE for making an adventure map with ImageToMap (The Eye) and rsmalec for making a great review of it!
And last but not least Sethbling for being a great youtuber and finding a good use for ImageToMap maps.

WAIT!! So you are telling me that you made a program that can build an entire world off a single image that is opened with this wonderful program that you created!! =D


I feel custom maps coming along!!

It's really just converting an image to an map_x.dat file and then you can use the map file to see the image in Minecraft using a map item.
But thanks anyways for posting! :D

I updated ImageToMap so I thought why not make another bump to put this a little bit higher on the first page.

This is a wonderful program that can change map images into whatever you want.
Just amazing, it helps alot if you want to display other things that signs etc. can't handle.
Download it! You won't regret it!

Wow, that's intresting. If I modify a map, and save the world as a zip, when someone plays the map will they see the modifyed map? Like, the altered world file is stand alone? I'm guessing this is the case which is pretty cool.

Currently, a map only charts the surface of a world, but with this you could take a picture of a slice of a dungeon, and paste that picture in a map. Then you would have a dungeon map, and if the picture was right your map position would be accurate.

Could also be used for picture clues, story info (waiting for books in 1.8 though), and other neat stuff. Well done, and thanks for making this!

This would only be possible with a mod or bukkit plugin.

I should note a big flaw with this way of accessing map data and that's you can't see the position of yourself or the position of others. That's because the center of the map is 13371337 x and -13371337 z. If the center of the map where 0 x and 0 z you would overwrite the map every time you look at it.

Is there a way to paint a 'transparent' colour, like an unrevealed map?

Oh, and for users, for 100% conversion use only the colours from this palette linked here

I can actually add that because you will never be able to reach far enough to explore that area
And by the way I'm going to start working on a new update, and that's going to be in it. ;)
