If Elbrus makes an internal map where it performs loop closure for localization purposes, it should really publish this map so that it can be used for navigation as well. Currently, making a map from the landmark seems like an opaque process. I am happy to receive instructions on how to create an occupancy map or something else that can be used for autonomous navigation using the Elbrus slam landmarks.
+1 on this request! Not exposing a grid or 3d map is a huge limitation to this otherwise very useful resource.
Yes, publishing a map would be helpful. We’ll get this feedback to the Elbrus engineers.
