Where to start for map extraction and localization based on magnetic sensors and physical landmarks ?

hi, ı have never experienced an ROS project so ı am new to this platform and I don't know where to start. I have only magnetic field sources based on randomly placed magnets and physical landmarks like bumpers. After some search ı decided to use ROS for that purpose. However, I don't know how to do that. I know I will need to first create a map based on these landmarks and in the second part, I will localize the robot in the created map while the robot is randomly being driven while the current position is shown on the screen. Btw, in the map creation part, we have a camera outside the area which robot scenes and it gives the coordinate information to the robot to understand where the robot is in the map currently.In the localization part, this camera is out of order. Which platform should ı use kinetic melodic?

Any suggestions and help are appreciated.
