i look for a simple way to display a static image in the 3D-visualization frame in rviz.

Is it possible to lay a image (a.e. a .png-File) over a plane marker? If yes, how it works?

if no, exist another way to realize it.

Thanks for your answer!

How about making the image a texture on a flat plane created in Blender or similar, export it to dae then load it into rviz as a mesh resource marker?

You could transform your png to occupancy grid format and publish it.

I think you are restricted to 3 grey values (white, grey and black). But I don't know another way to do it.

UPDATE: Why not copy the image to a point cloud with the x, y and z coordinates set to lie in your plane?
