Question Map Addon in minimap style

On some exploration video on the net I saw a guy using that addon. It wasn't uploader's video and he didnt knew it's name.

Just the main big map (M) looks like huge minimap, not with the drawed style, and with the real textures. It looked awesome, if someone know it's name please hit me up.

If the above poster's suggestion is not what you're looking for, why don't you post a link to what you're talking about.

Yata used to do this, but I think it has been long outdated

The only Map addon that i know of that used to use the minimap textures is the now abandoned Cartographer 3.0

Really??? Carbonite uses its' own maps, where as QH uses the Blizzard maps. Blizzard only uses six (6) levels of "zoom", but Carbonites' maps use "infinite" zoom. They are also (arguably) better looking than the default Blizzard maps.

There are other differences between the two addons, but it might be a moot point since QH is currently broken. There is someone trying to get it working again (with the authors permission) but I (personally) really don't care since I don't like QH and never have. Having used both (QH first, though) Carbonite is the best of the two, hands down (IMO).

Depending on how old the video is, the answer changes, more modern ones are probably carbonite, but an older one is more likely to be Yatlas. It's not been updated in a long time, but may still work, at least until the maps change in Cata.
