Octomap - A probabilistic, flexible, and compact 3D mapping library for robotic systems

Authors: K. M. Wurm, A. Hornung, University of Freiburg, Copyright (C) 2009-2013. http://octomap.github.com

Octovis is a visualization tool and library for OctoMap. It is distributed under the GPL license (see "LICENSE.txt").

Octovis is based on QGLViewer, distributed under the GPL license with an exception by the author.

LINUX

You can build octovis independently of octomap by following the these steps:

cd octovis
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make

You can manually set the location of the octomap library with the octomap_DIR variable in CMake.

Note: If you get an error such as

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindQt4.cmake:1148 (MESSAGE): Qt qmake not found!

but you have Qt4 installed, this probably means that both Qt3 and Qt4 are installed. In Ubuntu this can be resolved by executing:

sudo update-alternatives --config qmake

and choosing Qt4.

WINDOWS

The octomap viewer octovis can be compiled and used under Windows although this has not been tested in-depth. Feedback is welcome ("it works" is nice too :-))

To compile the library you need:

MinGW

  1. Download the MinGW distribution (http://www.mingw.org)
  2. Install C++ compiler and add MingGW/bin to your system PATH
  3. Download the QT library with MinGW support (http://qt.nokia.com/downloads)
  4. First build the GQLViewer library. Open a windows shell (e.g., from the START-Menu -> QT) and execute:

    cd octovis/src/extern/QGLViewer
    qmake
    mingw32-make
    

    This will generate QGLViewer2.dll and libQGLViewer2.a

  5. The viewer should be built along with the rest of the octomap package. From a shell execute:

    cd octomap/build
    cmake -G "MinGW Makefiles" ..
    mingw32-make
    

Microsoft Visual Studio 2010

  1. Download the QT library with Visual Studio 20xx support (currently 2008) (http://qt.nokia.com/downloads)
  2. To build the qglviewer library

    • open a windows shell (e.g., from the START-Menu -> QT)

      cd octovis/src/extern/QGLViewer
      qmake -t vclib QGLViewer.pro -spec win32-msvc2010    (ignore any warnings)
      
    • Load the generated file QGLViewer.vcxproj and build the project. This will give you the needed files QGLViewer2.(dll,lib).

  3. The viewer should be built along with the rest of the octomap package. These steps will create a solution file for the library and the viewer:

    • Start the cmake-gui and set the code directory to the octomap main directory.
    • Set the build directory to, e.g., /build
    • Press "Generate", select the appropriate generator, e. g. "Visual Studio 10". This generates a solution file octomap-distribution.sln
    • Load this file and build the project.

Some more hints on compiling with Visual Studio (these may be necessary depending on the VS version and CMake version): * When compiling QGLViewer, modify the output path in "Properties->Linker-> General->Output". Remove the "debug" and "release" prefix so the libs are installed in the base dir. * For the octivis-shared target, add the Qt lib path ("C:\path\to\Qt\4.7.2\lib") to "Properties->Linker->General->Additional Library Directories", and add the following Qt libs as dependencies in "Properties->Linker->Input-> Additional Dependencies": QtCore4.lib, QtOpenGL4.lib, QtGui4.lib and QtXml4.lib (and the debug versions of them to the Debug configuration) * If the debug version of octovis throws this error: "QWidget: Must construct a QApplication before a QPaintDevice", it is linking to the release version of QGLViewer. Change the library dependency of octovis and octovis-shared to the debug version QGLViewerd2.lib in "Properties->Linker->Input->Additional Dependencies".

When executing octovis.exe, Windows needs to find the following libraries, so make sure they are on the PATH or in the same directory: QGLViewer2.dll, QtOpenGL4.dll, QTGui4.dll, QTCore4.dll

      qmake -t vclib QGLViewer.pro -spec win32-msvc2010    (ignore any warnings)
      
    • Load the generated file QGLViewer.vcxproj and build the project. This will give you the needed files QGLViewer2.(dll,lib).

  3. The viewer should be built along with the rest of the octomap package. These steps will create a solution file for the library and the viewer:

    • Start the cmake-gui and set the code directory to the octomap main directory.
    • Set the build directory to, e.g., /build
    • Press "Generate", select the appropriate generator, e. g. "Visual Studio 10". This generates a solution file octomap-distribution.sln
    • Load this file and build the project.

Some more hints on compiling with Visual Studio (these may be necessary depending on the VS version and CMake version): * When compiling QGLViewer, modify the output path in "Properties->Linker-> General->Output". Remove the "debug" and "release" prefix so the libs are installed in the base dir. * For the octivis-shared target, add the Qt lib path ("C:\path\to\Qt\4.7.2\lib") to "Properties->Linker->General->Additional Library Directories", and add the following Qt libs as dependencies in "Properties->Linker->Input-> Additional Dependencies": QtCore4.lib, QtOpenGL4.lib, QtGui4.lib and QtXml4.lib (and the debug versions of them to the Debug configuration) * If the debug version of octovis throws this error: "QWidget: Must construct a QApplication before a QPaintDevice", it is linking to the release version of QGLViewer. Change the library dependency of octovis and octovis-shared to the debug version QGLViewerd2.lib in "Properties->Linker->Input->Additional Dependencies".

When executing octovis.exe, Windows needs to find the following libraries, so make sure they are on the PATH or in the same directory: QGLViewer2.dll, QtOpenGL4.dll, QTGui4.dll, QTCore4.dll
