These are the icons used on the in-game map.
On the compass and map, white locations are places you have previously visited (and therefore may fast travel to), and those in black are undiscovered. Only the icons of places you've been to or you've heard about will show up on your map.

  • In each Longhouse or Palace used by the Jarls there is a map depicting the present political climate in Skyrim. The red icons mark the current Imperial Legion-aligned settlements and forts, while the blue flags mark Stormcloak-aligned areas. The flags are meant to update when a hold changes hands, but occasionally they do not change.
    • Pressing "Activate" on any interactable part of this map will show its location on your map if you haven't discovered it yet.
    • An additional map without any map markers can be found in the basement of the Sleeping Giant Inn in Riverwood.


  • Your current area will occasionally be shown as a blue rectangle when zooming out to the world map.
  • Areas of the local map that were previously mapped may unmap themselves. The unmapped areas will be in rectangular shapes.
