A W3M file is a map file used by Warcraft III. It defines the layout of the map and objects within the map, including units, buildings, and items. It also includes terrain information, such as where trees and lakes are located. W3M files are included with Warcraft III and can also be created with Blizzard's Warcraft III World Editor, the official level editor for Warcraft III.
Maps for the Warcraft III Frozen Throne expansion pack use the .W3X extension.
