I like the structure of "Patterns of interest", however I'd rather go for a different acronym to avoid misunderstand and mixup with the term "Point of interest".

A POI traditionally is basically a location, or something at a specific location. But in AR we're talking about much more than that. That's why I started to replace to term POI with the term "augment" in my recent works. Because that's what it is: it's augments. No matter if we're talking about something placed at a geographic location or moving virtual objects. The term "augment" helped to easily talk about AR beyond classical POIs.
