- Valve's Hammer Editor saved level files in the binary, proprietary .rmf or text-based, human-readable .map format prior to version 4.0.
- In addition, the Halo series uses .map files for the levels. Duke Nukem 3D uses .map files for user-created levels.
- .map files are also used by Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas, a multiplayer modification for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
- Debugging maps. These are typically plain text files that indicate the relative offsets of functions for a given version of a compiled binary.
- .map files are also used by the MapInfo Professional Geographic Information System.
- .MAPs are also identified as color maps. An example of such software that supports .map files is SoundSpectrum's G-Force music visualizer.
- Another form of the .MAP file is for HTML image maps. An image map is formatted in HTML and creates click-able areas over a provided image.
