Map (sometimes referred after "The") is a main character on Dora the Explorer. He is Dora's helpful guide who lives inside Backpack's side pocket.


Map is a rolled-up map who peeks out from Backpack's pocket whenever he's called. He speaks English and is an incredibly useful friend to Dora because he always knows where to go and how to get there. Whenever Dora checks him for directions, he plots out her journey with a simple graphic that shows a route.


Map has a rather simplistic design and color pallet. He is yellowish-white with a light blue inside. He has blue eyebrows, a red mouth, and two white eyes with black pupils. In seasons 7 and 8, he becomes a computer-generated character, just like Backpack and the Fiesta Trio.
