    BlueMap is a tool that generates 3d-maps of your Minecraft worlds and displays them in your browser. Take a look at this demo. It is really easy to set up - almost plug-and-play - if you use the integrated web-server (optional).

    The mod automatically updates your map as soon as something changes in your world, as well as rendering newly generated terrain and managing the render-tasks.

    Some features and some blocks are still missing. Especially some tile-entities will not render correctly/at all. See below for a list of what is planned for future releases.


    Getting started

    BlueMap is mostly plug-and-play. Just install it like every other plugin and start your server. BlueMap will then generate some config-files for you in the ./plugins/BlueMap/ folder. Here you can configure your maps and the web-server.

    Please read the wiki for more detailed information!

    Metrics and Webserver

    BlueMap uses bStats, an own metrics-system and is hosting a web-server!

    Metrics are really useful to keep track of how the plugin is used and helps me stay motivated! Please keep them on :)

    Metrics: BlueMap is sending a super small report, containing only the implementation-name and the version of the BlueMap-plugin to my server. Here is an example report:
    Code (Text):
        "implementation": "bukkit",
        "version": "0.0.0"
    This data-collection can be turned off in BlueMaps configuration! (Turned on by default)

    Web-Server: The web-server is a core-functionality of this mod. So it is enabled by default but can be disabled in the config. By default the web-server is bound to all network-interfaces ('') on port 8100 and is hosting the content of the ./bluemap/web/ -folder.

    Commands and Permissions


    Todo / planned features

    Here is a todo-list ordered by what i right now think is the priority, but might always change or be reordered at my discretion. (I develop BlueMap in my free-time, so nothing here is a promise and there are no ETA's)

    It's like Google Earth but you have a 3D view option, and I love it! Seeing your beautiful world in new ways in 3D is so surreal! 2D maps are perfect... but they are limited to see the world in more detail.

    It supports mods, custom texture packs, and cool plugins as well, such as Lands.

    There is a storage "problem" but it mostly depends on how big your map is and how detailed you want it. Luckily I have 1TB of storage on my server pc, so I got nothing to worry about! It mostly depends on your hardware, if you have low storage go find another map plugin, if you have plenty of storage, you'll be fine!

    still no support for mysql, its sad because the plugin take a LOT of storage, and the feature request was open more than 1 year ago

    It's like Google Maps for your server! Keep up the amazing work on this because BlueMap is incredible!

    Awsome substitute for dynmap, and I am now using this instead of dynmap, much easyer setup than dynmap and I can only recomend this for any server, which wants an online map.

    just put this on my server to replace dynmap to see if it fixed the rendering lag and it runs much better and dosent try rendering everthing at once and gives me the advantage on not rendering the anarchy world since i dont think they want a map on that world

    i really do enjoy using BlueMap, along with its great support. However, a major downside is the storage. There isn't an external storage or MySQL option and due to this, BlueMap has been taking nearly 80% of my storage, specifically 75 GB of storage. I sadly won't be using BlueMap on my other projects just due to the hassle of having to deal with the extreme storage levels of BlueMap. I understand that this is probably a side project for the author, but I do hope that the author finds time to adds an external storage feature in the near future.

    Dynmap is good for larger scale servers, live Earth MOTFE. But this is good for smaller SMPs or Servers with more detailed rendering needed, If anyone wanted help setting up bluemap, watch this tutorial:
