I installed octomap using the source code and run the samples, which worked fine. But since I wanted on the fly 3D generation using kinect I installed ROS, open NI and rviz. I could capture point cloud data on rviz, converted it to .bt using octomap_tutor, which I further gave as input to octovis to generate 3D maps. But this is done manually and I want continuous 3D mapping i.e. on the fly 3D map generation. I found something on the forum that suggested using rviz pluggins for octomap, which I installed but I guess I'm missing the right way configure it. I also tried rviz by installing octomap_mapping and octomap_server but was unsuccessful. So please can anyone help me with the best method for on the fly 3D mapping using kinect camera?

Octomap is just a way to represent 3D data, it doesn't contain anything that aligns point clouds. There are packages that do do that, but more information would be helpful such as what kind of robot you're using and what kind of environment you're mapping (e.g. indoors or outdoors).
