# How to Check Coordinates in MineCraft

Minecraft performs the tracking of the location worldwide by the use of a system of coordination. Such coordinates are there in the debugging screen in the hidden form. They are in the computer versions of Mine craft. If you are there in the console and playing then you find the coordinates at the time when you will open the map.

If you are accessing the Minecraft PE, then you can perform the locating of the coordinates as long as the cheat codes are there with you in the enabled form.

Here we have explained how the coordinate system works and how you can search for the coordinates in different systems.

## Working of the Coordinate System

The map of Minecraft is divided into coordinates of three types. They are XYZ. Each of the values of them is for the indication of the position on the map.

Here we have explained the working of them:-

• X – It performs the determination of the position of the East or the West in the Map. The increase in the positive value to the East position. The value of negative increases the position to the West.
• Y- It performs the determination of the up or downwards in the map. The increase in positive value results in an upward position. The increase in negative value takes the position to the downwards side.
• Z- Performs the position to the map in North or South. The increase in positive value levels up the position to the South. The increase in negative value is in the position of the Northside.

## Absolute Coordinate

As when the coordinate is written in the form of a digit, then it is known as absolute coordinate and it means the specific position worldwide. As if we take an example, then 223 65 984 is an absolute coordinate and shows the specific location on the map.

## Relative Coordinate

When the coordinate is shown in the form of tilde notation, then in the game it is the relative coordinate. If we take an example, then ~1 ~2 ~3 is the relative coordinate which means to the position which is 1 block East, 2 blocks at the top, and the 1 block South position to the current form in the given map.

Now here we have explained how you can find the coordinates in Minecraft in various devices:-

## Method 1: Find Coordinates in Minecraft Via PC or Mac

Step 1

As by default in the versions of the newer ones, the information of debugging has been taken down. People can easily enable the screen of debugging from the Options menu. For that, open the options menu and then do the selection of Chat Settings. Then do the disabling of the “Reduced Debug Info”.

Step 2

After that press the Debug button. It will show you the readout of the information on debugging for Minecraft. The key for this is F3, though this may vary depending on the type of computer you have.

• For the desktop PC, press the F3 and it will open the screen of debugging.
• For most of the laptops and the Mac computers, you have to press the FN+F3.
• Then on the new Mac computers, you have to press the Alt+FN+F3.

Step 3

Search for the coordinate on the screen of debugging. You will get the various information regarding the debug readout. The simple coordinates are shown as “Block” while the coordinates of detailed one are shown as “XYZ”. You will also get the Facing entry which will show you at which of the direction you are in the current form.

Step 4

Do the interpretation of the coordinates. The determination of location is based on the block of starting one for the world of Mine craft. The Block entry shows the coordinate numbers of three that are XYZ without the labels in them.

• The X shows the location to the east or west of the block of starting (longitude).
• The Y location is above or below the block of starting (elevation).
• Z location is from north to south of the block of starting (latitude).

#### Step 5

Moving around for watching the value changes of the block. It will help in the knowledge of how the system of coordination works. If you find that the value of X is in negative form, then you are on the west side of the block of starting one. If you find that the Z is in negative form,  then you are on the north side of the block of starting one.

## Method 2:  Using Game Console

Step 1

Firstly, open the Ma. Then in the versions of the console of Mine craft, you can search for the coordinates on the map. All of the players can start through the map when the creation of a new world is there. Open the map in the new inventory.

Step 2

Search for the coordinates. The coordinate of the current one will appear at the upward side of the map until you have it appear there. It has three coordinates which are X, Y, and Z.

Step 3

Perform the interpretation of coordinates. The coordinates are based on the block which you first see there. As X is the longitude, the location east or the west on the block of starting one. Z is the location of the north or the south of the starting block. It is the latitude. Y is the current elevation which is the above of bedrock.

Step 4

View the coordinate’s changes as they move. You can view the coordinates changing in real there as when you will move. If you find that the value of X is positive, then you are at the east of the block of starting one. If the value of Z is positive, then you are on the south side of the starting block.

## Method 3: Using Minecraft PE

Step 1

If you are there in the creative world, then cheats are enabled through default. You can enable through the Worlds menu. Then tap on the pencil which is next to the name of the given world. Click on the Activate Cheats and then switches it to the On position.

The pop-up will occur there for telling that the achievements will be disabled in the permanent form for the world if you will continue there. If you are fine with it, then you have to enable the cheats and then tap on the Continue button. Go back to the location in the world where you want to see the coordinates.

Step 2

Then tap on the Chat icon. It is the icon of the chat bubble located at the upward side of the given screen.

Step 3

After that, type /tp ~ ~ ~ in the given chat window and then press the Enter key. It is the command for teleporting yourself in the present location where you have to view the coordinates. They will appear at the downwards side to the area of the left of the given screen.

Step 4

Do the interpretation of the coordinates. These coordinates are X, Y, and Z.
