The images shown at Compact Map Building - 3D Models from Laser Data are generated with laser3d, a tool written in the context of this project. It uses OpenGL to visualize data from laser data files created by hserver/MissionLab. It is published here because it might be useful or interesting to other people, but it is not supported and most likely contains bugs.
