Hello gazeebo-ers

I have been working with gazebo for a bit now and having difficulties.

I have a world and model of my drone and works well with ROS, mavlink etc.

I created a geofence which has its coordinates updated at 2Hz, but have no idea how to visualize the geofence in gazebo. i,e as the drone is moving the geofence surrounding it should also move.

Can anyone describe/enlighten how I would go about attempting this.

Perhaps you can create a static, transparent model (sphere?) without the collision geometry (just visuals and inertials) and set position for it on every coordinate update.

You would probably use a gazebo-ros model plugin and you would use method like SetWorldPose() (here for Gazebo7, you didn't specify your version so you have to look this up yourself) to set the position of the sphere on every coordinate update.
