Default Need help with Plink map file


I plan to phase my non-human organism genomic data using Shapeit2. I have recombination data available from literature, but I am struggling to understand how to set up the map file. I have read around but still not sure how to build the file. This is the description of the map file:

This file can be SPACE or TAB delimited. Each line corresponds to a SNP. The 4 columns are:
1) Chromosome number [integer]
2) SNP ID [string]
3) SNP genetic position (cM) [float]
4) SNP physical position (bp) [integer]

I am not sure on the interpretation of column 3. Let's say I have a known recombination rate of 13mbp/cM and 4 SNPs in position 500, 10,000, 20,000, 33,000 on chromosome 2 : how should the map file look like?

Thank you for your kind attention,
