Problems in visualizing sequential points as connected line segments
Hi, I am trying to visualize sequential points as connected line segments using Rviz in ROS Indigo Ubuntu 14.04 LTS PC. Below is the snippet of data, received using rostopic echo
command on terminal:

The above data is received from Kinect and represents joints in the human skeleton, in which each joint has unique jointType
field. Below is the more information about joint type as defined in Kinect v2 sensor:
I want to visualize this skeleton by showing it as connected line segments in Rviz. However, the displayed skeleton looks weird as below:
Here, the skeleton is considered as a combination of line strips, which is set of lines. Hence, I decomposed the skeleton into three LINE_STRIP as following:
upper_body
# [In Red Color] from head to spine basehands
# [In Green Color] from lefthand tip to righthand tiplegs
# [In Blue Color] from left foot to right foot ...
