The OctoMap library implements a 3D occupancy grid mapping approach

The OctoMap library implements a 3D occupancy grid mapping approach, providing data structures and mapping algorithms in C++. The map implementation is based on an octree and is designed to meet the following requirements:

Full 3D model. The map is able to model arbitrary environments without prior assumptions about it. The representation models occupied areas as well as free space. If no information is available about an area (commonly denoted as unknown areas), this information is encoded as well. While the distinction between free and occupied space is essential for safe robot navigation, information about unknown areas is important, e.g., for autonomous exploration of an environment.
Updatable. It is possible to add new information or sensor readings at any time. Modeling and updating is done in a probabilistic fashion. This accounts for sensor noise or measurements which result from dynamic changes in the environment, e.g., because of dynamic objects. Furthermore, multiple robots are able to contribute to the same map and a previously recorded map is extendable when new areas are explored.
Flexible. The extent of the map does not have to be known in advance. Instead, the map is dynamically expanded as needed. The map is multi-resolution so that, for instance, a high-level planner is able to use a coarse map, while a local planner may operate using a fine resolution. This also allows for efficient visualizations which scale from coarse overviews to detailed close-up views.
Compact. The map is stored efficiently, both in memory and on disk. It is possible to generate compressed files for later usage or convenient exchange between robots even under bandwidth constraints.
