Odometry is the frame of robot's odometry reading. This transform is generally generated by robot itself. Base link of robot is defined w.r.t to odometry. Then odometry is defined w.r.t to map/world, whatever is the fixed frame. Transform between odometry and map/world is to be defined explicitly unless some mapping packages like gmapping is used.

Hope this helps..
