Whenever you fire with an unsilenced gun, you pop up on the minimap. Regardless of range.
Whenever you're spotted, you pop up on the minimap and get a dorito above your head if you're in line of sight (3d spot)
Third one is more interesting since I haven't really figured this one out. If a guy aims at you for a long enough time without spotting, you pop on the minimap anyway (and get a dorito). I don't know if you pop up for every enemy, though
I assume you're not a pc player? Otherwise you could expand your map with M or change scaling with N

PS3, thanks for the info. As long as a player on my team has a Dorito guy in his line of sight, he will stay on the minimap for the whole team? Is this why sometimes tanks and vehicles disappear from the map, even though I'm right on the other side of a wall?
Vehicles when spotted show a dorito (they show the vehicles icon, but for the sake of continuity) don't follow the same rule as infrantry; if they're spotted, they will show up regardless if you have a line of sight or not.
I don't know if you can "unspot" if you're still in the line of sight of the guy seeing you, if that's what you mean. It shouldn't really matter anyway, in probably no scenario a guy will stare you down for 10+ seconds without shooting you (or at least try)
