Hi everyone,

I am using mrpt_rbpf_slam packge for building maps using ROS kinect. I have created maps succesfully but I wondered if there is a way to go on building a map from other previous map for complete it and adding more relative information.

The feature you want is called "Lifelong mapping" and as far as I know there is no available SLAM algorithms in ROS that offer it.

The Cartographer team is working right now towards that goal and appears to be close to completion.
