# Rviz odometry display fixed frame [closed]

Hello,

I'm trying to use rviz to display the odometry data I have recorded from a GPS. For this I run the gps_common node to get the odometry from the GPS data renaming the TF frame:

$rosrun gps_common utm_odometry_node frame_id:=/world  This outputs a odometry message correctly (checked using rostopic echo /odom). Now I run rviz and set as global fixed frame /world and add an odometry display, then set it's property topic to /odom, after which I get the following status details: Status: Error Topic: OK Transform: Transform [sender=/utm_odometry_node] For frame [fcu]: Fixed Frame [/world] does not exist fcu is the node from which the GPS data comes and it is parameters has listed the default reference frame as: ~ssdk/tf_ref_frame_id (str, default: world) tf reference frame.  I hace tried to check the frames with: $ rosrun tf tf_monitor
RESULTS: for all Frames

Frames:



Which must mean it doesn't detect any frames.

Which frame should I set as a fixed frame for the odometry to be shown? Should a new tf be broadcasted for this?

Thanks,

I don't know about this specific problem, but you can also show the output of rostopic hz /tf and rosrun tf view_frames.
