Reinstall Monster Hunter Now

Failing that, you can't go wrong with a proper hard reinstall, deleting Monster Hunter Now from your phone entirely and downloading it again. Of course, ensure that you've logged into the game with an account, so you don't lose any of your progress when deleting.

Then download the game again from your app store of choice, log back in, and see if the Monster Hunter Now map is loading again. Hopefully, it will be!

Check for updates

Failing those two fixes on your own mobile device, it's likely a problem with Monster Hunter Now as an application - a pesky glitch that makes the map not load.

In that case, check your app version and make sure it's the latest release. Niantic will constantly release patches to ensure problems like this are ironed out, so double check you're running the latest version, or download an update if you aren't.

Check social media

If all other options are exhausted, and you're definitely on the latest software version for Monster Hunter Now, then it'll rest in Niantic's hands to do something about the map not loading. We recommend keeping an eye on the game's X (formerly Twitter) page, which will no doubt share details on known bugs and a roadmap for fixes.
