I have mapped my environment, and have the map in image format and yaml format that is working well with RVIZ. Is there an easy way to create a Gazebo .world file from map, to test my setup in simulation?

I think the easiest way is to import the image to gazebo and draw the walls or other stuff base on it.

the steps will be

  1. ctrl + b open building editor (I think the name is right)

  2. click import in the left

  3. set scale

  4. draw features base on your map.

Is there a more automated process? I have to create a number of different worlds from different maps, and it would take a very long time to do it this way.
