OS : Ubuntu 16.04 ROS-Distribution : kinetic

cartographer_ros is installed using "sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-cartographer*" and I am unable to run "cartographer_occupancy_grid_node under cartographer_ros package. However, when code is built from github using catkin_make_isolated, I am able to run this node.

Why is it not available when cartographer binaries are installed using apt-get ?

The version of cartographer_ros available in ROS Kinetic is 0.2.0.

apt-cache show ros-kinetic-cartographer-ros | grep Version
Version: 0.2.0-0xenial-20191214-110813+0000

The cartographer_occupancy_grid_node node was added to cartographer in version 0.3.0.

So you need to build from source or to use ROS Melodic that provides a deb for cartographer_ros 1.0.0.
