AWS Spatial Computing Blog

Build, Deliver, and Manage Spatial Computing Experiences on AWS


The Spatial Computing blog channel will categorize future blog posts into three key topics: Build, Deliver, and Manage. This is to address the common elements that Spatial Computing applications undergo throughout their life cycle.

What is Spatial Computing?

We define Spatial Computing as the potential digitization (or virtualization, or digital twin) of all objects, systems, machines, people, their interactions and environments. In practice, this could be Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Mixed Reality (MR), Computing-Aided Design (CAD), Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Digital Twin, Model Based Definition (MBD), Reverse Engineering, Computer Fluid Dynamics (CFD), or similar applications. Spatial Computing starts when there are 3D coordinates involved, and the application experience is centered in a 3D space. The topics of this blog channel will center on Building, Delivering, and Managing spatial experience while leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS) tools and services.


Helping builders focus on building is a key use case for leveraging AWS. AWS allows builders to focus on what matters in their application, i.e. UI/UX, rendering fidelity, user collaboration, data processing, etc., truly bringing your ideas to life. Posts related to this topic will address how to build applications with AWS tools and services. For example, how to use your favorite authoring application on Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, or how to stream and load assets from storage resources.


Getting applications into the hands of users is a critical step to ensuring the success of any spatial application. Blog posts within this topic thread will center on the steps needed to confirm users have a positive experience using your applications. Posts will show methods to bring spatial experiences to users, whether that be streaming pixels from Amazon EC2 instances, distributing the built application or configuring web-based spatial experiences to run at their optimal level.


As a spatial application, beyond traditional CAD and FEA programs, move to production use cases, managing the application becomes a critical aspect to consider. How to update applications, manage device configurations, address high availability, or secure content distribution become key elements of the application. Blog posts within this topic thread will help leadership and designers alike understand what it takes to make certain their spatial experiences are successful long term.


For spatial experiences, seeing is believing. Here at AWS, we want to show you that we are motivated to be Earth’s best place in the world to Build, Deliver, and Manage spatial experiences. We will do this with real life use cases and best practices to confirm you are ready, able, and motivated to build, deliver, and manage the best spatial experiences possible for your users.
