I am wondering where the resizing should be taking place.
With the global costmap and a static layer, the map gets resized when a map comes in.
But when I use the local costmap with just an obstacle, footprint and inflation layer there should be a point where the dimension should be read in.
Can you tell me where this should happen? Can't find it...

I am on ROS Hydro with the hydro-devel navigation branch.

Well, I found it. It's only read in over dynamic reconfigure and I don't use it!

You can still set a width and a height parameter in the root of the costmap's rosparams.
