A map is an aggregation of the topics in a DITA document, with the topics arranged as a list or a hierarchy.

DITA documents can have multiple maps or sets of maps for a given document. For example, a software product available for both Windows and Linux might have two maps, each specifying the topics to include in that document version. As another example, a large, complex document might have a master map that included multiple submaps, specifying the topics to include in various "chapters" and "sections."
