Simple use case I have here.

I want to develop a custom GUI which a user can interact with - specifically so they can view a map and simply select the location that they would like the robot to go to.

Is there anything currently existing that is used for this purpose that I can build on? (RVIZ for isn't a viable solution here as I have to be concerned about user simplicity can experience)

Thanks & Regards

RobotWebTools has a way to visualise maps. Perhaps that could serve as a starting point?

Part of GT-RAIL/nav2djs.

@gvdhoorm - thanks I'll give it a spin. I was thinking of something that I could integrate into a web app

RWT is good then right?

Donno yet :) Started playing with the tutorials. It looks like it will give me a easy route for UI integration for users with no need or want to understand what's happening under the hood
