Dear all,

I would like to add an extra information to a map created by gmapping. In fact, in addition to 2d coordinates and the Occoupancy Grid (-1: Unknow 0: Free 100: Occupied) of each cell, I wish to add the height of this cell from the ground. for example: the height of a table from the ground is 0.75 meters, for a ball; 0.30 meters ...

Is there someone who did this before ?

Best Regards.

You may want to have a look at the grid_map package, it's a very powerful map storage and visualisation library. You can store any number of layers of information, including elevation data that you describe. It can support many different layers which can be configured at runtime.

I think you'll have to adapt gmapping to be able to work with this, but it's not impossible that someones done this too.
