There are several kinds of maps available in Planetside:

  • Interstellar Map - also called Galactic or Global Map.
  • Continental Map - also called continent, planetary, or overhead map; shows view of selected continent.
  • Cluster View Map - shows view of a selected island in a cluster.
  • Cavern Map - shows view of selected cavern.

These maps are sometimes collectively refered to as the Game Map or Overhead Map.

There is also another map that appears on your HUD screen, but has different features. This is the Proximity Map, also called Proximity Radar or Radar Map.
