Hello Everybody, i just want to know how to geht X and Y coordinates of the /scan Laserdata. When i play an bagfile and visualize the /scan in RVIZ it shows me XYZ (Z not needed) as well, so i think it is possible, right?

I heard something about to transform the scan data into pointcloud. But for this i need to create a publisher / subsrcriber by myself. Is there a simpler way to go?

Thank you!

Both laser_geometry and laser_assembler provide methods to convert scans into clouds, and laser_assembler already provides the node(s).
