The above is a link to a very powerful Image classifier using Deep learning . I have managed to perform Gmapping on our robot and its generating a very reliable map .

I need to know how i can automate the process of marking locations on map .

Using the current position and pose from the /odom topic , when a desired object is detected in the frame , robots current location is marked in the map with the name of the detected object .

The idea is to use something like this in, say , supermarkets . A robot running Gmapping and a good robust image classifier like darknet can keep updating the location of different items .

*So essentially i am seeking for a python script which can mark name tags on the current position/ anypositon on the map* **
