Hello, I'm using ROS kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04.

I have may map files generated by g-mapping with hokuyo lidar sensor and I'd like to display the map file on rviz. Unfortunately, but I have no idea how to display it. I mean, to display the map I have to publish a [map] topic at least so that rviz-launcher could subscribe to it. I want to display my gotten map file on rviz with a mobile robot. Would you happen to give me some advice?

Thanks in advance :)

If I understand your question, you're looking for map server:

@billy Thank you for your quick reply! It was very simple but very helpful to me at least!
