Have a really good look round the samples you wil find here:
The one that looks most immediately useful is the AugmentedRealityDemo which probably comes with your IDE, but you can also find it on githab here:

It seems to use Open GL to display an image that will change as you move the device around. You possibly won't use Open GL, but the interaction with the Accelerometer is interesting isn't it.
For you application, you will probably first want to find out exactly where the phone is - so look at the SimpleLocationApi sample in the first link I sent you.
From there I presume you will send a location to the Server which will then provide you with the details of the local POIs. So look round for networking samples and find out how you are going to get the data to display.
This should keep you busy for a bit.

That is a separate question to this, and so should be on its own Thread.
But before you start your own Thread, make sure you review the many other posts you will find that discuss people not able to get the location on their device,. If you search you will find a number of these and also pointers to some diagnostic location code that you should try. So search, use some of the hints, tips information and diagnostic code you will find, and if that doesn't help, start your own Thread.

I have used the Location API sample demo. But i am not getting the location.
I have used other code and i am getting the latitude and longitude. Now , on which server i have to send the latitude and longitude so that i get the POI??
