How to use hector elevation mapping?

Hi all!

hector_elevation_mapping advertises pointclouds and generates a local and/or global 2.5D elevation map.

I'm going to use this as a part of my project. I have the equipment that I need, Hokuyo UST 20LX and ASUS XtionPRO Live motion sensor (for point cloud). I managed to connect both equipments. However, how do I use the elevation mapping node?

In RVIZ, there can only be one Fixed Frame, either /base_link (if I want to use laser scan) or /camera_link (if I want to use the motion sensor). I can't set both simultaneously. This way, how am I going to put them together to use the elevation mapping?

Is there anything else I need to connect in order for RVIZ to do 2.5D map scanning?

Thanks for any help!

Did you get "normal" hector_mapping running? I am not sure, but I think you need it. You can check out our launch files under https://github.com/ne0h/hmmwv/tree/ma... and adapt them to the topics your robot uses.
