It looks like mod_semantic_map isn't indexed properly on, but if you browse software on and go to its details page, you'll find that source is available here and a tutorial is available here.

EDIT: You should have a look at the environment variables wiki page to understand what's happening with the failure of rosmake.

rosmake uses the variable ROS_PACKAGE_PATH when looking for ROS packages to compile. If you create or download a new package and its directory isn't on the path, rosmake won't work.

To see what the path currently is, type 'echo $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH'

If the directory in which you put mod_semantic_map isn't on that path, then you know that's the problem.

To add a directory to the path, type 'export ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=/the/directory/to/add:$ROS_PACKAGE_PATH'

You may also want to put this line in your ~/.bashrc file so it will happen automatically at login.

It's a subversion repository, so you should type 'svn co' in whatever folder you want to download the code. Then, you'll want to rosmake the package.

BTW, mod_semantic_map depends on knowrob, so make sure you can "roscd knowrob" to knowrob stack first.

Please have a look at the first two ROS tutorials "Installing and Configuring Your ROS Environment" and "Navigating the ROS Filesystem" on this page Your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH needs to be correct for rosmake to find the packages.
