“update area outside of original map area” is the error I get when visualising the topic /move_base/global_costmap/costmap. The costmap displays correctly but the path planning behavior from move_base is not upto mark. There is nothing on google or the docs to suggest what might casue it except the source code for rviz here.' at line 506

If you look at the entire block that gives that error, you'll see that this error stems from the update being out of bounds of the original map so they're rejected

// Reject updates which have any out-of-bounds data.
if (update->x < 0 || update->y < 0 || < update->x + update->width || < update->y + update->height)
    setStatus(StatusProperty::Error, "Update", "Update area outside of original map area.");

So, it appears that your update is out of bounds.

This error was due to incorrect width and height in global cost map params
