A large-scale mapping approach is combined with multiple robots events to achieve cooperative mapping. The mapping approach used is based on hierarchical SLAM -global level and local maps-, which is generalized for the multi-robot case. In particular, the consequences of multi-robot loop closing events (common landmarks detection and relative pose measurement between robots) are analyzed and managed at a global level. We present simulation results for each of these events using aerial and ground robots, and experimental results obtained with ground robots.
