Foxglove can load local data files for visualization.
Since ROS 2
.db3 files do not contain their message definitions, we recommend first converting those into self-contained MCAP files before loading into Foxglove.
To load a local file for visualization, you have several options:
- Double-click the file from your file manager
- Drag-and-drop the file into Foxglove directly
- "Open local file" in the "Open data source" dialog to select a file from your filesystem
