I am trying to navigate an ardone quadrotor with a map of the environment. I have a map of the environment created using ardrone (monoslam) being displayed in RViz. But I am not able to localize the ardrone in rviz with its current location with respect to the map. Is it possible to visualize in realtime the current location and motion of ardrone in rviz? (as we stream the videos in real-time in rviz).

I found a video related to real time localizing, AR Drone Experiment - RViz visulaization

but I am not sure how to recreate this with my ardone?

Does your system performs the localization? If yes, how does the localizer node publishes the localization data? As a topic, TF or both?

I am using PTAM, which publishes a topic,

vslam/pose (geometry_msgs/PoseWithCovarianceStamped) PoseWidthCovarianceStamped for the 6DoF pose calculated by PTAM. This is the world seen from the camera.
