0.2.4 (2017-08-11)

  • Add /wgs84 frame to point click publisher when available.
  • Transform cube and arrow markers properly
  • Contributors: Marc Alban, P. J. Reed

0.2.3 (2016-12-10)

  • Delete markers that have expired and remove error message. (#454)
  • Fix segfault in pointcloud2 plug-in when pointcloud is empty. (#450)
  • Initialize buffer size variable. (#447)
  • Contributors: Marc Alban

0.2.2 (2016-12-07)

  • Migrated OpenCV to 3.1 (default in Kinetic)
  • General code cleanup of mapviz_plugins This doesn\'t change any functionality; it\'s just cleaning up code. Notably, this will:
    • Fix all warnings (notably lots of ones about type casting)
    • Move all .ui files to their own directory
    • Remove unused variables
    • Remove commented-out code
    • Make spacing and indentation consistent
    • Make brace style consistent
  • Contributors: Brian Holt, Marc Alban, P. J. Reed

0.2.1 (2016-10-23)

  • Add a GUI for controlling the Image Transport (#432) This will add a sub-menu under the \"View\" menu that will:

    • List all available image transports
    • Indicate which one is currently the default
    • Allow the user to choose which one will be used for new ImageTransport subscriptions
    • Save and restore this setting to Mapviz\'s config file

    - Cause any image plugins using the default transport to resubscribe In addition, the image plugin now has a menu that can be used to change the transport for that specific plugin so that it is different from the default. Fixes #430 Conflicts: mapviz/package.xml

  • Fix icon colors for point drawing plugins (#433) This was probably broken back when all of these were refactored to have a single base class. It looks like the member variable that holds the color used to draw the icon was never actually being updated. Fixes #426

  • Add option to not scale arrows with zoom level This adds a checkbox to all of the plugins that can draw a series of coordinates as arrows; i. e., the NavSatFix, Odometry, and TF Frame plugins. This checkbox will control whether the arrows are drawn at a fixed size regardless of zoom level or whether they are scaled with the zoom level. Resolves #414

  • Fix signed comparison warnings in mapviz_plugins

  • Adding a way for plugin config widgets to resize

    • Adding an event plugins can emit to indicate their geometry has changed

    - Modifying the PCL2 plugin to use it as an example Fixes #393

  • Adding default values for uninitialized variables Resolves #372

  • Creates and implements an abstract class for drawing point paths Updates gps,navsat,odometry,path, and tf_frame plugins to use the abstract point drawing class. Also adds the draw laps functionality which will change the color of the path as it passes a base point for ease of visibility, currently implemented on gps and odometry plugins. Conflicts: mapviz_plugins/CMakeLists.txt mapviz_plugins/include/mapviz_plugins/gps_plugin.h mapviz_plugins/src/gps_config.ui mapviz_plugins/src/gps_plugin.cpp

  • Ensuring that Mapviz won\'t subscribe to empty topic names (#379) Clean up and made more consistent the code for handling subscriptions for all topics. The behavior is now:

    • All input is trimmed before processing

    - If a topic name is empty, the old subscriber will be shut down and will not subscribe to the empty topic Resolves #327

  • Fixing some typos in documentation.

  • Implementing support for the ARROW marker type Resolves #365

  • Contributors: Ed Venator, Marc Alban, P. J. Reed

0.2.0 (2016-06-23)

  • Update Qt to version 5
  • Fixing a crash in the PointCloud2 plugin Also sneaking in a few more changes:
    • Caching transformed clouds to improve performance
    • Properly saving the value of the \"Color Transformer\" combo box
  • Returning \"false\" if no other code handles the mouse event Fixes #360
  • Contributors: Ed Venator, P. J. Reed

0.1.3 (2016-05-20)

  • Implement mapviz plug-in for calling the marti_nav_msgs::PlanRoute service.
  • Migrate route plugin to use swri_route_util This change migrates the mapviz route plugin to use swri_route_util to get consistent behavior with route transforms and route position interpolation. As part of this change, the route is now transformed with each draw so that it will correctly move around if the transform between the fixed frame and the route frame is not constant.
  • Add support for mono8 textured markers.
  • Implement service for adding and modifying mapviz displays.
  • Adding attitude indicator plugin.
  • Changing some \"unsigned long\"s to \"size_t\"s.
  • Storing source frames individually for plugins w/ buffers
  • Fix for #265; message source frames don\'t update Several plugins were storing the source frames of messages received when they first received a message but never updating them, so subsequent messages in different frames would be rendered incorrectly.
  • Fix for #339; explicitly depending on OpenCV 2
  • Fix route position search The route position search would ignore a matching point unless it is already transformed, which means that only points that have already been searched and missed would be transformed. The new logic looks first for the match, then transforms as necessary. Unmatched points are ignored.
  • Guard against repeated transforms A point should only be transformed once, because the mapviz transforms are set outside the plugins; TransformPoint will now only transform un-transformed points.
  • Remove unused variable prev_position_ is set, but never actually used.
  • Adds route plugin with routeposition marker attachment.
  • Also updating the disparity plugin
  • Fixing #317 First, the model view matrix needs to be saved and restored around QPainter operations because Qt clears several GL variables. Also, the image plugin needed to explicitly call glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION); it does a few operations on the projection matrix and was just assuming that was the current matrix mode. Also, I added a function that plugins need to override if they want to do QPainter operations; this will eliminate unnecessary overhead for plugins that do not.
  • Declaring types for Qt signal/slot use properly
  • Fixing some typos
  • Doing GL drawing on the main thread for #313
  • GPS plugin snuck back into CMakeLists.txt
  • A plugin for displaying std_msgs/Strings
  • Marker plugin will use a QPainter to draw text I modified the Marker plugin so that it will use a QPainter to draw text labels rather than OpenGL commands. This doesn\'t really add any functional benefit; it\'s meant to serve as an example of how to use the QPainter.
  • Fixing warnings and cleaning up formatting
  • updated mapviz_plugins.xml
  • add pointcloud2 plugin
  • Update map canvas at a fixed rate. This update adds a timer to the map canvas to repaint at a fixed rate. The default rate is 50 Hz, but there is a method to change it (not exposed to the UI at the moment). 50Hz was chosen because it is fast enough to give smooth animations and we almost always are running mapviz with at least one plugin triggering updates from a 50Hz topic.
  • Making the Image plugin use image_transport. The image_transport package provides support for transparently subscribing and publishing to topics using low-bandwidth compressed formats; if the publisher supports it, this will cause the Image plugin to consume far less bandwidth than before.
  • Handle cases where marker topic changes message types. This commit makes a better effort to properly support cases where a marker topic changes between Marker and MarkerArray during runtime.
  • Use ROS\' shapeshifter to handle marker/marker arrays.
  • This commit adds a class called SelectFrameDialog that plugins can use to present the user with a dialog to choose a TF frame. The dialog sorts the frames by name and provides an edit box that the user can use to filter the frames to a specific substring.
  • Indigo compatibility. Fixing swri_transform_util and swri_yaml_util API changes from Hydro to Indigo.
  • Also filtering out clicks that are held for too long.
  • Adding a check to prevent the click event from firing if the user is dragging the mouse.
  • Fixing an issue that could cause the click publisher plugin\'s publisher to not be initialized after it\'s first added.
  • Removing some code I had added for debugging.
  • Adding a plugin that, when a user clicks on a point, will publish that point\'s coordinates to a topic.
  • Adding color button widget and updating plugins. This commit adds a subclass of QPushButton called ColorButton that implements a widget for displaying and selecting colors. We\'ve been doing this manually everywhere with duplicated code. This is a simple abstraction but allows us to elminate a lot of duplication, especially in plugins that have multiple color selections.
  • Adds SelectTopicDialog to mapviz. This commit adds the SelectTopicDialog that can be used in plugins to provide the user with a dialog to select topics. Typically we have done this with a lot of duplicated code across all the plugins. This commit also updates the plugins in mapviz_plugins to use the new dialog. The new dialog provides several benefits:
    • Reduced code duplication
    • Simplifies writing new plugins
    • Common behavior between all plugins
    • Topics sorted by name
    • User can filter topics by substring
    • Continuously checks the master for new topics while the dialog is open.
  • Contributors: Elliot Johnson, Jerry Towler, Marc Alban, Nicholas Alton, P. J. Reed

0.1.2 (2016-01-06)

  • Enables the possibility to load a one-layer tile set
  • Sorts topic, plug-in, and frame lists in selection dialogs.
  • Fixes tf plug-in update.
  • Contributors: Marc Alban, Vincent Rousseau

0.1.1 (2015-11-17)

  • Extensions for geo files (PR #262)
  • Adds a plugin to visualize laser scans. Display features are based on the laserscan plugin for rviz:
    • Points can be colored by range, or x/y/z axis
    • Points can be colored by interpolation between two colors or rainbow coloring
  • Adds a plugin to visualize sensor_msgs/NavSatFix msgs, based on the old GPSFix plugin
  • Contributors: Claudio Bandera, Ed Venator, Vincent Rousseau

0.1.0 (2015-09-29)

  • Removes gps plugin, since gps_common is not in ROS Jade. See issue #238.
  • Contributors: Edward Venator

0.0.3 (2015-09-28)

0.0.2 (2015-09-27)

  • Adds missing qt4_opengl dependency

  • Exports the mapviz_plugins library
  • Adds find_package(OpenCV REQUIRED) to cmake config
  • adds icon to gps plug-in
  • includes yaml_util header in mapviz plug-in base class

  • Converts incoming GPSFix points to the local XY frame as they arrive.
  • Changes the GPS plugin to always transform from the local XY frame.
  • Adds a plugin to display GPSFix data.
  • Fixes a few instances where \"multires\" was typoed as \"mutlires\".
  • updates cmake version to squash the CMP0003 warning
  • removes dependencies on build_tools
  • switches format 2 package definition
  • Updates marker_plugin to correctly handle marker orientation.
  • adds color selection for path visualization
  • display preview icon next to plug-in names
  • sets the z component of path points to 0 before transforming to avoid uninitialized values

  • Migrated OpenCV to 3.1 (default in Kinetic)
  • General code cleanup of mapviz_plugins This doesn\'t change any functionality; it\'s just cleaning up code. Notably, this will:
    • Fix all warnings (notably lots of ones about type casting)
    • Move all .ui files to their own directory
    • Remove unused variables
    • Remove commented-out code
    • Make spacing and indentation consistent
    • Make brace style consistent
  • Contributors: Brian Holt, Marc Alban, P. J. Reed

0.2.1 (2016-10-23)

  • Add a GUI for controlling the Image Transport (#432) This will add a sub-menu under the \"View\" menu that will:

    • List all available image transports
    • Indicate which one is currently the default
    • Allow the user to choose which one will be used for new ImageTransport subscriptions
    • Save and restore this setting to Mapviz\'s config file

    - Cause any image plugins using the default transport to resubscribe In addition, the image plugin now has a menu that can be used to change the transport for that specific plugin so that it is different from the default. Fixes #430 Conflicts: mapviz/package.xml

  • Fix icon colors for point drawing plugins (#433) This was probably broken back when all of these were refactored to have a single base class. It looks like the member variable that holds the color used to draw the icon was never actually being updated. Fixes #426

  • Add option to not scale arrows with zoom level This adds a checkbox to all of the plugins that can draw a series of coordinates as arrows; i. e., the NavSatFix, Odometry, and TF Frame plugins. This checkbox will control whether the arrows are drawn at a fixed size regardless of zoom level or whether they are scaled with the zoom level. Resolves #414

  • Fix signed comparison warnings in mapviz_plugins

  • Adding a way for plugin config widgets to resize

    • Adding an event plugins can emit to indicate their geometry has changed

    - Modifying the PCL2 plugin to use it as an example Fixes #393

  • Adding default values for uninitialized variables Resolves #372

  • Creates and implements an abstract class for drawing point paths Updates gps,navsat,odometry,path, and tf_frame plugins to use the abstract point drawing class. Also adds the draw laps functionality which will change the color of the path as it passes a base point for ease of visibility, currently implemented on gps and odometry plugins. Conflicts: mapviz_plugins/CMakeLists.txt mapviz_plugins/include/mapviz_plugins/gps_plugin.h mapviz_plugins/src/gps_config.ui mapviz_plugins/src/gps_plugin.cpp

  • Ensuring that Mapviz won\'t subscribe to empty topic names (#379) Clean up and made more consistent the code for handling subscriptions for all topics. The behavior is now:

    • All input is trimmed before processing

    - If a topic name is empty, the old subscriber will be shut down and will not subscribe to the empty topic Resolves #327

  • Fixing some typos in documentation.

  • Implementing support for the ARROW marker type Resolves #365

  • Contributors: Ed Venator, Marc Alban, P. J. Reed

0.2.0 (2016-06-23)

  • Update Qt to version 5
  • Fixing a crash in the PointCloud2 plugin Also sneaking in a few more changes:
    • Caching transformed clouds to improve performance
    • Properly saving the value of the \"Color Transformer\" combo box
  • Returning \"false\" if no other code handles the mouse event Fixes #360
  • Contributors: Ed Venator, P. J. Reed

0.1.3 (2016-05-20)

  • Implement mapviz plug-in for calling the marti_nav_msgs::PlanRoute service.
  • Migrate route plugin to use swri_route_util This change migrates the mapviz route plugin to use swri_route_util to get consistent behavior with route transforms and route position interpolation. As part of this change, the route is now transformed with each draw so that it will correctly move around if the transform between the fixed frame and the route frame is not constant.
  • Add support for mono8 textured markers.
  • Implement service for adding and modifying mapviz displays.
  • Adding attitude indicator plugin.
  • Changing some \"unsigned long\"s to \"size_t\"s.
  • Storing source frames individually for plugins w/ buffers
  • Fix for #265; message source frames don\'t update Several plugins were storing the source frames of messages received when they first received a message but never updating them, so subsequent messages in different frames would be rendered incorrectly.
  • Fix for #339; explicitly depending on OpenCV 2
  • Fix route position search The route position search would ignore a matching point unless it is already transformed, which means that only points that have already been searched and missed would be transformed. The new logic looks first for the match, then transforms as necessary. Unmatched points are ignored.
  • Guard against repeated transforms A point should only be transformed once, because the mapviz transforms are set outside the plugins; TransformPoint will now only transform un-transformed points.
  • Remove unused variable prev_position_ is set, but never actually used.
  • Adds route plugin with routeposition marker attachment.
  • Also updating the disparity plugin
  • Fixing #317 First, the model view matrix needs to be saved and restored around QPainter operations because Qt clears several GL variables. Also, the image plugin needed to explicitly call glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION); it does a few operations on the projection matrix and was just assuming that was the current matrix mode. Also, I added a function that plugins need to override if they want to do QPainter operations; this will eliminate unnecessary overhead for plugins that do not.
  • Declaring types for Qt signal/slot use properly
  • Fixing some typos
  • Doing GL drawing on the main thread for #313
  • GPS plugin snuck back into CMakeLists.txt
  • A plugin for displaying std_msgs/Strings
  • Marker plugin will use a QPainter to draw text I modified the Marker plugin so that it will use a QPainter to draw text labels rather than OpenGL commands. This doesn\'t really add any functional benefit; it\'s meant to serve as an example of how to use the QPainter.
  • Fixing warnings and cleaning up formatting
  • updated mapviz_plugins.xml
  • add pointcloud2 plugin
  • Update map canvas at a fixed rate. This update adds a timer to the map canvas to repaint at a fixed rate. The default rate is 50 Hz, but there is a method to change it (not exposed to the UI at the moment). 50Hz was chosen because it is fast enough to give smooth animations and we almost always are running mapviz with at least one plugin triggering updates from a 50Hz topic.
  • Making the Image plugin use image_transport. The image_transport package provides support for transparently subscribing and publishing to topics using low-bandwidth compressed formats; if the publisher supports it, this will cause the Image plugin to consume far less bandwidth than before.
  • Handle cases where marker topic changes message types. This commit makes a better effort to properly support cases where a marker topic changes between Marker and MarkerArray during runtime.
  • Use ROS\' shapeshifter to handle marker/marker arrays.
  • This commit adds a class called SelectFrameDialog that plugins can use to present the user with a dialog to choose a TF frame. The dialog sorts the frames by name and provides an edit box that the user can use to filter the frames to a specific substring.
  • Indigo compatibility. Fixing swri_transform_util and swri_yaml_util API changes from Hydro to Indigo.
  • Also filtering out clicks that are held for too long.
  • Adding a check to prevent the click event from firing if the user is dragging the mouse.
  • Fixing an issue that could cause the click publisher plugin\'s publisher to not be initialized after it\'s first added.
  • Removing some code I had added for debugging.
  • Adding a plugin that, when a user clicks on a point, will publish that point\'s coordinates to a topic.
  • Adding color button widget and updating plugins. This commit adds a subclass of QPushButton called ColorButton that implements a widget for displaying and selecting colors. We\'ve been doing this manually everywhere with duplicated code. This is a simple abstraction but allows us to elminate a lot of duplication, especially in plugins that have multiple color selections.
  • Adds SelectTopicDialog to mapviz. This commit adds the SelectTopicDialog that can be used in plugins to provide the user with a dialog to select topics. Typically we have done this with a lot of duplicated code across all the plugins. This commit also updates the plugins in mapviz_plugins to use the new dialog. The new dialog provides several benefits:
    • Reduced code duplication
    • Simplifies writing new plugins
    • Common behavior between all plugins
    • Topics sorted by name
    • User can filter topics by substring
    • Continuously checks the master for new topics while the dialog is open.
  • Contributors: Elliot Johnson, Jerry Towler, Marc Alban, Nicholas Alton, P. J. Reed

0.1.2 (2016-01-06)

  • Enables the possibility to load a one-layer tile set
  • Sorts topic, plug-in, and frame lists in selection dialogs.
  • Fixes tf plug-in update.
  • Contributors: Marc Alban, Vincent Rousseau

0.1.1 (2015-11-17)

  • Extensions for geo files (PR #262)
  • Adds a plugin to visualize laser scans. Display features are based on the laserscan plugin for rviz:
    • Points can be colored by range, or x/y/z axis
    • Points can be colored by interpolation between two colors or rainbow coloring
  • Adds a plugin to visualize sensor_msgs/NavSatFix msgs, based on the old GPSFix plugin
  • Contributors: Claudio Bandera, Ed Venator, Vincent Rousseau

0.1.0 (2015-09-29)

  • Removes gps plugin, since gps_common is not in ROS Jade. See issue #238.
  • Contributors: Edward Venator

0.0.3 (2015-09-28)

0.0.2 (2015-09-27)

  • Adds missing qt4_opengl dependency

  • Exports the mapviz_plugins library
  • Adds find_package(OpenCV REQUIRED) to cmake config
  • adds icon to gps plug-in
  • includes yaml_util header in mapviz plug-in base class

  • Converts incoming GPSFix points to the local XY frame as they arrive.
  • Changes the GPS plugin to always transform from the local XY frame.
  • Adds a plugin to display GPSFix data.
  • Fixes a few instances where \"multires\" was typoed as \"mutlires\".
  • updates cmake version to squash the CMP0003 warning

  • Doing GL drawing on the main thread for #313
  • A plugin for displaying std_msgs/Strings
  • Marker plugin will use a QPainter to draw text I modified the Marker plugin so that it will use a QPainter to draw text labels rather than OpenGL commands. This doesn\'t really add any functional benefit; it\'s meant to serve as an example of how to use the QPainter.
  • Making the Image plugin use image_transport. The image_transport package provides support for transparently subscribing and publishing to topics using low-bandwidth compressed formats; if the publisher supports it, this will cause the Image plugin to consume far less bandwidth than before.
  • Fixing warnings and cleaning up formatting
  • updated mapviz_plugins.xml
  • Update map canvas at a fixed rate. This update adds a timer to the map canvas to repaint at a fixed rate. The default rate is 50 Hz, but there is a method to change it (not exposed to the UI at the moment). 50Hz was chosen because it is fast enough to give smooth animations and we almost always are running mapviz with at least one plugin triggering updates from a 50Hz topic.
  • Handle cases where marker topic changes message types. This commit makes a better effort to properly support cases where a marker topic changes between Marker and MarkerArray during runtime.
  • Use ROS\' shapeshifter to handle marker/marker arrays.
  • This commit adds a class called SelectFrameDialog that plugins can use to present the user with a dialog to choose a TF frame. The dialog sorts the frames by name and provides an edit box that the user can use to filter the frames to a specific substring.
  • Indigo compatibility. Fixing swri_transform_util and swri_yaml_util API changes from Hydro to Indigo.
  • Also filtering out clicks that are held for too long.
  • Adding a check to prevent the click event from firing if the user is dragging the mouse.
  • Fixing an issue that could cause the click publisher plugin\'s publisher to not be initialized after it\'s first added.
  • Removing some code I had added for debugging.
  • Adding a plugin that, when a user clicks on a point, will publish that point\'s coordinates to a topic.
  • Adding color button widget and updating plugins. This commit adds a subclass of QPushButton called ColorButton that implements a widget for displaying and selecting colors. We\'ve been doing this manually everywhere with duplicated code. This is a simple abstraction but allows us to elminate a lot of duplication, especially in plugins that have multiple color selections.
  • Adds SelectTopicDialog to mapviz. This commit adds the SelectTopicDialog that can be used in plugins to provide the user with a dialog to select topics. Typically we have done this with a lot of duplicated code across all the plugins. This commit also updates the plugins in mapviz_plugins to use the new dialog. The new dialog provides several benefits:
    • Reduced code duplication
    • Simplifies writing new plugins
    • Common behavior between all plugins
    • Topics sorted by name
    • User can filter topics by substring
    • Continuously checks the master for new topics while the dialog is open.
