### Can I build instant maps from kinect

Hi all

ROS is really a great stranger to me.

I am using Xbox360, ROS Kinetic, Ubuntu16.04 LTS

I am doing a project in which the robot should produce the map as it goes through an unknown environment. Is it possible to do so. As of now I only know the method of using .bag files i.e., hector_slam but I have a problem there also. Any way I have posted a question regarding that already.

Can anyone suggest me a way how to do the mapping instantly only using kinect. I mean I can't provide /tf data from the robot. But, I want to get the map without any thing like bag file.

Sorry for poor English. Hope you all understand the question.

UPDATE

I HAVE CLONED THE RTab PACKAGE INTO MY CATKIN WORK SPACE. AND THEN I AM DOING CATKIN_MAKE. I HAVE THIS ERROR

CMake Error at rtabmap_ros/CMakeLists.txt:21 (find_package): By not providing "FindRTABMap.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by "RTABMap", but CMake did not find one.

Could not find a package configuration file provided by "RTABMap" (requested version 0.14.0) with any of the following names:

RTABMapConfig.cmake
rtabmap-config.cmake


Add the installation prefix of "RTABMap" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "RTABMap_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If "RTABMap" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed.
