Can't comment on the 3D Map, but for a 2D Map you could use the pointcloud_to_laserscan to generate 2D scan and then use the normal Map creation with the following tutorial

Any reason why you only mention pointcloud_to_laserscan and not depthimage_to_laserscan?

The answer is in respect to the flow process to be followed, not any specific node. I had used the mentioned node.
