How to Use Cartography Table in Valheim

To use the cartography table in Valheim, approach it. You’ll note that it has two options when you attempt to interact with it, “Record discoveries” and “Read map.” The first option basically fills in the map with everything you have discovered so far, including markers, notes, and the like. The latter allows you to make a copy of the map that’s already on the table onto your map. In other words, the cartography table allows you to share your map with anyone else currently playing on the server. It’s a fantastic quality-of-life feature that is going to make playing with friends much more fun while still keeping with the game’s in-universe logic. I love it.

    Hi, and thanks for the early guide! One question for ya… when copying someone else’s map that’s on the table, do the details of the tabled map get ADDED to my map or do the details REPLACE what I already have on my map?

    Thanks again!

      Hi, Kevin! As far as we can tell, it adds to your map and doesn’t replace what you already have.

    Thanks for the help! Does it copy just your markings or expose the areas as well?
