I was trying to install the nav_view package on ROS Diamondback on a 64 bit mac Snowleopard. However this is what I see,

j0813563:~ sagnikdhar$ rospack find nav_view [rospack] couldn't find package [nav_view]

Has nav_view been deprecated ? If yes, what is the alternative package for Visualization applications ?

Thank you.

See this ros-users email thread. The relevant bit from that thread:

So, for DTurtle, we're trying to remove dependencies on visualization stacks like ogre from our core stacks. Since navigation falls into this category, and the nav_view package relies on ogre, it has to move from navigation. That much is decided. However, I'm not sure exactly where to put the nav_view package. Do I create a new stack or just throw it in sandbox?

I'm not sure where it moved to, but I believe it has been deprecated in favor of using rviz.

You can download the cturtle version of nav_view here:

You can use rviz instead of nav_view for visualization of mapping/navigation. IIRC nav_view was indeed on the way to deprecation, someone else will likely provide more details.
