I have RPLidar A1 device and I would like to know how I could limit the scan angle from 0 degrees to 180 degrees using Hector Mapping Slam.

Note: I am using ROS indigo on ubuntu 14.04.

I have tried that but did not work for me; it might be there is something that I am doing wrong. If you have any experience with this, please give the instruction how to run it.

Try following the example launch and use yaml file given in the tutorial, by replacing with your desired angles. If you need explanation of any part, feel free to ask.
