"By any chance?" means "Is there any possibility?

"Chance" can mean a couple of different things. One is that it means "a possible opportunity," as in, "I have a chance to go to Italy." But in this sentence, the meaning is similar to "luck" or "random happenstance." So, the person is saying something like, "There's no reason that you would have a map, but do you happen to have one anyway?"
