* ''TheTenthKingdom'' also has a map thoughtfully provided for the viewers' enjoyment, on the wall of Snow White Memorial Prison, so that both the hapless heroes TrappedInAnotherWorld and the viewers can learn exactly what the Nine Kingdoms look like. Unlike most versions of the fantasy map, it displays places which are never visited in the miniseries, since the story remains confined to the Fourth Kingdom (with brief forays into the Third and Ninth). It also has the amusing location marker "You Are Imprisoned Here" -- this becomes a slight RunningGag in the {{Novelization}} with a map in Kissing Town marked "You Are Romantically Here" -- and has the interesting feature of being remarkably similar in outlines to Europe... a feature which has led to some interesting EpilepticTrees among the fandom, ranging from [[AlternateHistory the Nine Kingdoms having diverged from our timeline centuries ago]] to our world being a non-magical, cursed offshoot of the Kingdoms.

* On ''BeanyAndCecil'', Captain Huffenpuff would show a map of the team's latest adventure. The focal points of the map are labeled with some outrageous puns.

* AndreNorton's early ''WitchWorld'' novels had a small world map drawn by Jack Gaughan, showing the three main kingdoms with the ocean to the west. In some of the later novels there are two maps covering a much wider area, one of which depicts the lands on either side of the western ocean, and the other depicting the rest of the eastern continent.

* TamoraPierce's ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' series has its own map showing the location of Winding Circle Temple as relative to nearby cities, but not a perhaps more useful map of Winding Circle ''itself.'' The ''Circle Opens'' quartet each have a map of the city they take place in as well, and ''The Will of the Empress'' has a map, although not a very detailed one, of Sandry's home country of Namorn.

If the ocean is on the left side of the map, then it's a LeftJustifiedFantasyMap.

LeftJustifiedFantasyMap. If the northern regions are cold and the southern regions are warmer, it's NorthIsColdSouthIsHot.

* Robert E. Howard included a map with the ''ConanTheBarbarian'' stories, though given Howard's rather slam-bang style of world-building, it wasn't so much a physical map as a series of political borders. It's mentioned at one point in "Literature/ThePhoenixOnTheSword," where King Conan adds the northern lands where he came from to the maps of the Aquilonian court.

Added DiffLines:

* Each book in the ''Literature/CodexAlera'' contains a stylized map of Alera itself and parts of its surrounding lands.
* Each of the ''Literature/AgeOfFire'' books has a map of the region the series takes place in, but each one is varied depending on the book -- for example, Wistala's solo focus book only shows the lands between the Inland Ocean and the Red Mountains, [=AuRon=]'s includes those lands but also spreads further east, and the Copper's shows the underground network of tunnels that form the Lower World, because those are the areas where those books are focused. Also, each map has a series of footnotes marking where key events from that specific book takes place.

* ''{{Webanimation/RWBY}}'', an {{Animesque}} CGI production from Creator/RoosterTeeth, created and animated by Creator/MontyOum, has one of the world of Remnant. An interesting note is that two of the landmasses in the final version of the map closely resemble dragons (both Eastern and Western styled), having serpentine-like bodies with what resembles wings, horns and jaws. This is mostly coincidence: Monty came up with the map by spilling some coffee on a napkin and folding it up a few times.

* Each book of ''Literature/TheBalancedSword'' has a map of Zarathan in the front, and sometimes also more detailed maps of specific regions visited in that book. Zarathan, which was developed as a setting for roleplaying games as well as novels, was created to be large enough that the heroes have no chance of visiting every place on it, and there's room for multiple epic adventures to be going on simultaneously.
