In navigation stack I am using a launch file. In that launch file map_server package is launching map_server node.

For creating map I am using gmapping package. In Gmapping I am using map_saver node from map_server package to save a map. I am in confusion that in Navigation stack which node of map_server package I should use map_server or map_saver.

What is the difference between map_server and map_saver?

map_saver saves a map generated by gmapping to a file on the computer. You can then use the map_server package for publishing this saved map for localization.

So in short map_saver saves a generated map, and map_server uses the saved map.
