The basic game Arma 2: CO for DayZ offers 3 huge game maps besides one smaller one. Chernarus is the current game world of DayZ and since you spawn with no ingame map at all, there is a little help available.
This is a nice webpage with the Chernarus Map Online:
- zoomable; with town names in latin letters aswell in Cyrillic...ingame names are in cyrillic thats why the map is a big help.
@Gamplay ProTip: Playing without any map gives a much more intense and exciting expirience ingame. You are on your own and have to discover the world for yourself. I would try to play without the map first like the game should be played...you will find a map aswell as loot ingame if you are lucky. Use the online map really only if you cant advance ingame anymore.
