This is something that can be done using topic_tools/transform.

One of the examples on that page does something very similar:

convert an orientation quaternion to Euler angles:

`rosrun topic_tools transform /imu/orientation /euler geometry_msgs/Vector3 'tf.transformations.euler_from_quaternion([m.x, m.y, m.z, m.w])' --import tf`

As to your question:

I'm wondering if this can be done in a launch file, though I'm not sure.

Something like:

`<remap from="/data" to="/data" * 10 />`

No, that is not possible. `remap`

s don't work like that.

Let's say I have a node (that I didn't write) publishing an Int32 value

`data`

between 0 and 1. Is it possible to scale`data`

so it's between 0 and 10 instead of 0 and 1?

I'm going to assume you meant to write:

As an `Int32`

can only encode integer values, so it would only ever be `0`

or `1`

, nothing in between.

So for your specific example, it would probably be something like (haven't tested this):

```
rosrun topic_tools transform /input /output std_msgs/Float32 'm.data * 10.0'
```
