In augmented reality (A/R), virtual reality (V/R) and mixed reality (M/R), the term "UV Mapping" refers to the process of generating a two-dimensional (2D) representation of a three-dimensional (3D) object, model or geometry.

An example of a 3D model being unwrapped into a 2D plane that is known as its UV map.

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

UV mapping is the 3D modeling process of projecting a 3D model's, object's or geometry's surface to a 2D image for texture mapping.

The coordinates that are used when considered a UV Map are known as UV Coordinates.
