I want to create a map of the environment and later use that map for traversing the surrounding. I can use gmapping but I have another input - Wi-Fi, which will help me to minimize the uncertainty. Moreover using gmapping will create a 2D map and I have no idea about how can that map hold extra information about the Wi-Fi data collected by it. Therefore, is there any SLAM approach apart from gmapping that utilizes the information provided by the Wi-Fi along with Odometry and Laser data to create a map of the environment. Wi-Fi data provides unique ID at each location. Just assume the whole floor to be divided into grid and each grid box is of the size 4m X 4m having an unique ID to identify with. Any kind of help is appreciated.

Thank you so much in advance! :D

Is this not a duplicate of #q253652?

I think language makes a big difference. There I am asking for steps to edit gmapping explicitly here I am focusing on any new SLAM that could do the work. I will edit the question above and remove the gmapping part from this question.
