Aruco module, does it have 'Markermap'?

Hi, I was using the original aruco code, from here:

But am now using the opencv contrib module version, which works great. In the original code though, there is this concept of a 'markermap' which means you can place markers all over a room, film them, then run the video through aruco to calculate the positions. Once you have this map, you can use the 3d marker positions to localize.

My question is, does this exist in the same way in the opencv version?

I think the contrib module is based on Aruco 1.0. And that website is the new 2.0 version which offers many improvements. The old Aruco had what were called boards (known as marker maps in 2.0) but were planar only. Try to go back to the previous code you were using if you need that feature.

I don't think the OpenCV version of aruco requires the board to be planar.

"The common form of a board of marker is a planar (2D) board, however any 3D layout can be used."
