I need to modify hector_slam for my situation. So i learned that i need to create/build a new package.

So i want to create just like existing hector_slam package and modify it like i want.

For creating new hector_slam package to modify, which one is suitable and easier for my situation. catkin package ( ) or ros package ( ) ?

roscreate is a remnant from the old rosbuild build system. For any new projects you should be using the catkin build system and correspondingly, catkin_create_pkg.
