I've been exploring the end. I have a couple of full-scale (4/4) map items of the same region that have different parts explored. How can I combine the maps to make a single complete map?
For example, I have two maps of region A. On one map I have explored the WEST HALF of region A. On the other I have explored the EAST HALF of region A. How can I combine the two maps to have a COMPLETELY EXPLORED map?
Edit: Based on the first response below, here's a different way of saying it that may be more clear:
I don't want to merge two maps of DIFFERENT regions, I want to merge two maps of the SAME region. For example, let's say my friend and I start our maps in the same spot. He goes east, I go west. We come back to the center. Can we merge the info on those two maps of the same region to share the exploration info?
I tried putting the two maps into a crafting table (as how you would copy a map item to a blank map item) but with no success.
Note: almost all of the info I've found online is about merging custom world maps. That's not what I'm looking for; I want to merge two map items.
I'm playing Realms on PC (Java edition).
