Hey guys,

I am trying to evaluate a score for every orientation of the robot on a particular generated path. For this I need to deal with maps as OccuypancyGrid as matrices. Currently, I am using raw numpy to make my things work, but I wanted to know if there is any library or package to deal with maps in ROS?

These packages ANYbotics/grid_map can be a good starting point for you.

What exactly do you want to do with the maps?

I need to subscribe to the maps and need to see how much of the unexplored area does the conical/sectoral FOV of my camera covers in it.

Is the 'iterator' section the README of grid_map something I should use?

This part or grid_map_filters seem to be appropriate, right
