I wish to publish the clicked point in Rviz. I read that we need to be using the ROS navigation stack for this feature to work. However, my setup doesn't use laser scans and relies on aruco markers. Hence, I am not using the navigation stack.

You do not need to be using the ROS navigation stack. Just have your software subscribe to the topic that rviz is publishing for clicked points.

That was simple and it worked. Thanks! You may add that as an answer if you like.
