What are UV Coordinates in Spatial Computing?

In augmented reality (A/R), virtual reality (V/R) and mixed reality (M/R), the term "UV Coordinates" refers to the two-dimensional (2D) coordinates of the UV map of a 3D model, object or geometry. U is the x coordinate and V is the y coordinate.

An example of a how a 3D model converts into a UV map and how it allows for texture mapping.

UV Coordinates are the x (u) and y (v) coordinates of a UV Map, which is the two-dimensional (2D) plane that is projected on to the surface of a 3D model's, object's or geometry's surface.
