Showing Points of Interest

A Point of Interest is automatically displayed using one of the Points of Interest UI components.

For example, the Minimap prefab from the examples displays a rectangle on the bottom right corner of the screen.

The Indicators prefab displays the icon of the Task directly on top of the screen space position of the scene object.
