How to use GetMap-Service by gmapping

I'm using gmapping to create a map. To this point everything works fine.

Now I want to call the GetMap-Service to receive the map for further investigation:

#include <nav_msgs/GetMap.h>

ros::ServiceClient client = n.serviceClient<nav_msgs::GetMap>("map");
nav_msgs::GetMap srv;

  if (
    ROS_INFO("Service GetMap succeeded.");
    ROS_ERROR("Service GetMap failed.");
    return 1;

But when running this node I always get "Service GetMap failed." I added gmapping to "find packages" in CMakefile and to build & runtime dependencies in package xml.

What's my fault?

According to the documentation, the service is called dynamic_map. Try that one.

so you mean to use gmapping::dynamic_map instead of nav_msgs::GetMapas service? And include #include <gmapping/dynamic_map.h> ? Can you post a link to documentation please? If I do so I get the fault "gmapping/dynamic_map not found"

I now found the documentation you talk about I think. Is it this? so I in cluded #include slam_gmapping.h but when i catkin_make this file cannot be found. :(
