I followed the tutorial on . but the map in rviz is just a mess.

I thought it might be a problem of tf, but I don't know how to set the parameters in launch file.

The parameters in tutorial doesn't work. thanks for help!

the parameters in mapping_default.launch is shown below:

<launch> <arg name="tf_map_scanmatch_transform_frame_name" default="scanmatcher_frame"/> <arg name="base_frame" default="base_footprint"/> <arg name="odom_frame" default="nav"/> <arg name="pub_map_odom_transform" default="true"/> <arg name="scan_subscriber_queue_size" default="5"/> <arg name="scan_topic" default="scan"/> <arg name="map_size" default="2048"/>

<node pkg="hector_mapping" type="hector_mapping" name="hector_mapping" output="screen">
