Revision history [back]

According to your config in the launch file, you are mapping in the odom frame, so you only use odometry. Accumulated error will cause a drift in the position estimate. So errors when re-visiting known areas are to be expected.

As mentioned in the comment above that line in the launch file, you need to switch to mapping in your actual map frame when using a localization source or SLAM.
