I didn't get any result when I enter this way:

rosservice call /re_comm/request_2d_map "envUID: 'octomap.octomap3343'
srdl: 'turtlebot_roomba.owl'
baseScannerLink: 'kinect_depth_frame'
targetMapName: 'my_map'" 
success: False
  name: ''
  data: []

The SRDL has to be the complete OWL file content as a string, not only the file name (the server uses this content to compute the pose of the laser scanner to be used for generating the 2D map, so the local file name does not work). The baseScannerLink also needs to be a full OWL IRI of the respective link in the SRDL file, e.g. ''.

You can have a look at the file re_comm/src/roboearth/wp5/ for examples how the services are used.
