Spatial Anchors without Spatial Mapping?
Can spatial anchors be used without spatial mapping? I have a fairly large area which I dont really need to map. However when I place my objects they tend to drift a lot. So I'm thinking of using spatial anchors in WorldAnchorManager just to prevent the drift. I don;t need these anchors to persist between app sessions. Can this be done?
