UMG "map" and matching it with actual level "points of interest" - how?

How does one go about having a map (stylized or a shot of the level taken from bird eye view) as full screen UMG or 3D widget and having player (and other actors) “markers” on the map to match location / rotation of actual player (other actors) on the level ?

Also, how would you go about generating such map (I assume orthogonal camera at 0 0 Z that takes a screenie and then screenie either used as-is or painted over) ?

Thanks beforehand

this needs some calculation of the Objects world position, according to the Map Texture Size.
Like:
Objekt Position (XY) 0,0 is in upper left of the map.
The Mapsize is 50005000 Units. The Map Texture for the UMG is 20482048.

Object Pos X On map == (2048 / 5000)*Object World Loc X

Same for Y
Then show an Image or what you want on the OnMap Position.

This is just a basic idea behind such a system.
When you have a scrollable Panel, you need to add the scrolling offset to the position and such, to get the correct position of the Object Markers.
