mapviz - missing multi-res-image and tile-map plugins

asked 2016-10-06 10:41:13 -0500

I'm trying to use mapviz to plot the location of a robot on a geo-referenced map. The multi-res-image plugin for mapviz seems perfect for my application but when I click add the options are missing for multi-res-image and tile map.

I installed using apt-get like so sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-mapviz ros-indigo-mapviz-plugins I'm using ROS Indigo on Ubuntu 14.04.

Should I try installing from source?

Even easier than installing from source, install these packages: sudo apt-get installs ros-indigo-tile-map ros-indigo-multires-image

PS, for Rviz + Offline Google Maps checkout my tutorial:

Hi I have followed the step you mentioned. I can see the mapproxy via http://localhost:8080/demo/# url. But the map is not available in the mapviz and in terminal I can see an error

Hi When the fixed frame is "far_field" it works fine, but when the fixed frame is wgs84 it kinda stopped working with the same error as mentioned before "Network Error .......". I have no idea the reason behind this
