Treasure Maps randomly spawn by digging (also flattening and leveling), mining (tunneling and surface mining), fishing, and/or hunting creatures.
Activate a compass and right-click the Map, select "Read Map". Stand still while it's reading, face a single direction.
You'll get a general distance and direction, use the table above to see where to go next. Keep reading the map until you're on top of the tile.
When you find the tile, use your shovel on the map to unearth the treasure chest (don't dig the ground).
When the chest is revealed, Mobs will "ambush" you. These mobs are level tied to the ql of the map.
Sometimes a chest will contain a very large item, try using "take" instead of dragging it to another inventory.
