Used to create the zones on the overhead world map. If your mouse falls inside one of the defined boxes... you're looking at that zone. Assumed to be layered based upon ID (ie If Mulgore overlaps Durotar, Mulgore has a higher ID, so Mulgore will come up instead of Durotar).

The Virtual Map ID (see below) is used for zones such as Exodar or Silvermoon, which resides in a map and are virtually shown in another. You see Exodar in map 1 (Kalimdor) in-game, while it is really in map 530 (Outland). Virtual map id is -1 when the Map ID is always correct.


Column 	Field 			Type 		Notes 
1 	ID 			Integer 	
2 	iRefID_Map 		Integer 	Possible reference to WorldMapContinent.dbc column 2. 
3 	iRefID_AreaTable 	Integer 	
4 	areaName 		String 		Name of the Worldmap-Files (Interface\WorldMap\ ... \ ...x.blp [1 < x < 12 {4*3}]
5 	locLeft 		Float 		Map border coords: Left Y
6 	locRight 		Float 		Map border coords: Right Y
7 	locTop 			Float 		Map border coords: Top X
8 	locBottom 		Float 		Map border coords: Bottom X
9 	iRefID_displayMapID 	Integer 	Virtual Map ID
10 	iRefID_defaultDungeonFloor Integer 	Dungeon Map ID (override x1,x2,y1,y2 coordinates)
cata	parentWorldMapID	Integer
