Is it possible to Pause and Resume SLAM

I've been working with GMapping and Cartographer recently on ROS Kinetic. I noticed with both SLAM algorithms the map can only be saved and loaded but never can it be paused or resumed. If I restart SLAM, it starts creating a map from scratch again. Although that is reasonable, in some cases maybe we don't want the map to be created from scratch again but we want the SLAM to resume. Is there any possible way for SLAM to pause/resume for GMapping or Cartographer?

Thanks In Advance
