Move_base: Why is the global costmap different?

Hi all,

In the two images below, the colour of the global costmap is different: one is bright yellow and the other is a greyish-yellow. Any ideas as to why this happens? Is it something important to navigation? I am thinking that when the global costmap appears greyish-yellow, move-base was not launched correctly. Is this so? I am sorry if this is a silly question!

Did you check if the two views have exactly the same rviz display items enabled (the checkboxes in your rviz "Displays" panel)? It seems that your top view doesn't show the static map

Thanks, I'll check that out although the displayed items should be the same in both cases. In the top view the map's outline is not showing clearly but the map still seems to be there...
