How do you merge multiple maps (generated by map_server map_saver) to form a single map?

I want to generate a single map of a building with high accuracy. Then I will use the map in AMCL for localization

  1. Place the LIDAR in a known position
  2. Generate the scan map using gmapping with the known position
  3. Move to a new known position by moving the LIDAR manually
  4. Repeat 2 until the entire building is mapped
  5. Merge the maps to a single map
