Shall I say, when laser sanner is working very well and gmapping is translating message to /map topic very well, there is no need to publish X, Y position and heading angle to ROS via /odom topic?

I want to create map with Xtion pro live. I provided odom and tf information to ros. But the map was messed up, I don't know why. Sounds gmapping failed to match odom and map information
