am using rviz to visualize a point cloud and some sick laser data but i'm unable to view both at the same time as i need to change the fixed and target frame from /laser (for laser data) to /world (for point cloud).

how can i view both laser data and point cloud at same time?

The ability to see both depends on the transform from "laser" to "world". If the transform is large, you won't be able to see both simultaneously. If the transform is small enough, you should be able to see both on the same screen.

And if the transform is missing, rviz won't display both properly. You then might want to use the static_transform_publisher.
