Given an AprilTag in a known (global) location, is it possible to use the relative location and orientation data to extract the robot's absolute global position and orientation (in this case, a Turtlebot)? I am finding myself more than slightly confused about how to use the orientation data in each ar_pose_marker message to accomplish this.

I'm using the ar_track_alvar package.

Thanks!

Which package are you using? ar_pose or ar_track_alvar? You've mentioned both but haven't specified.
