It has been acknowledged that the first person to make a astronomical catalogue consisting of deep sky objects was Charles Messier.

If that is considered a "Map of the Sky" then it was Charles.

The ancient Sumerians and ancient Egyptians certainly had star maps and catalogs, but these have been lost. The oldest star atlas that we have record of was compiled by the Greek-Egyptian astronomer Claudius Ptolemy about 2000 years ago, and his atlas survived only because it was translated into Arabic 1500 years ago, and was discovered in the libraries of Cordova and Toledo, Spain, when "El Cid" conquered the Arabs and unified Spain.

The ancient Greek astronomer Hipparchus is often credited with creating the first known star catalog and mapping out the positions of stars in the sky. His work laid the foundation for future astronomers to further study and understand the celestial sphere.
