PR2 move_base how to get map

I bring up pr2 in Gazebo with

roslaunch pr2_gazebo pr2_emtpyworld.launch

PR2 comes up and I want to use move_base programatically to move it to some (x,y) coordinate. So I tried to bring up move_base server with following..

rosrun move_base move_base

But it asks for map, the tutorials in pr2_simulator and navigation stack only talk about pre-defined maps.

[ INFO] [1358441051.870152566]: Still waiting on map...

Is it possible to get a map out of Gazebo? Or, am I suppose to be manually creating a map file? I read similar questions on this forum, but still confused.. Since I am fairly new to ROS/ navigation stack / map, please refer to specific example. Thanks!
