The map was created and owned by Vector Prime, one of the thirteen original Primes, and keeper of space and time. It was created by collecting the data of the Keys' locations.
In the end of the last episode, Vector Prime gave the map to Bud before departing, never to be seen again. But he would still be the keeper of time and space. Bud gave it to Optimus Prime, leader and commander of the Autobots, as a remembrance of him.
The map appears as a round, bronze-coloured sphere, that can be activated, and by doing that a yellow hologram will appear above it, showing the locations of the four Cyber Planet Keys on a map of the galaxy.
