Hello everyone,

I am currently working on using ROS to build a map of a building for a
robot to use SLAM coding to navigate through said building. However, I
have limited access to the robot, as an undergrad, due to the need for the
grad students to use the robot for their various projects. I was wondering
if there was anyway to build a map of the building using just the values
from the laser range finder, so just the dimensions of the building,
without physically using the robot, and then to just load it onto the
robot when I get the chance and have the robot localize itself by
comparing its range finder values with the values of the map? Thanks for
any help!
