I am attempting to configure an intel realsense camera to act as a laserscanner for use in the ros navigation stack. I am using ros melodic on ubuntu 18.04.

Here is my launch file:

I have confirmed that the laserscan is being published to the scan topic, so I know that that is not the issue.

Why are you launching a map_server if you want gmapping to publish the map?

You can check if the map_server and gmapping are publishing to the same topic by using "roswtf".

Also the remapping in line 29 seems quite odd to me
