i am using QGIS 1.8 in ubuntu 12.04 . i am working with ROBOTIC OPERATING SYSTEM(ROS) and QGIS simultaneously . My ROS system is connected to LIDAR(sensors) that will publish gps message so i could subscribe and print latitude and longitude values continuously in terminal using c++ program.
My next task is to take this latitude and longitude values from terminal and plot it in qgis map. then i want to track waypoints. can anyone help to do so? i dont have any idea as i am new to QGIS. please note that everything should be done without depending to internet connection.
please suggest your ideas. . . .
