Deprecated

This is the documentation for the depricated, standalone version of map2djs. This version blazed the trail and helped us establish use cases and applications. However, it is now considered deprecated and is not currently supported.

For the currently maintained version of map2djs, please see ros2djs.

About

map2djs is a stack that allows for an easy way to render a map (in the form of a nav_msgs/OccupancyGrid message) into an internal HTML5 canvas element. The main widget, Map, listens to a given ROS topic and renders the map internally. By default, the widget will request the nav_msgs/OccupancyGrid message once to save bandwidth; however, an option can be set to allow for continuous streaming. Such an option would be useful if you are using SLAM, for example.
