In this paper, we define the problem of spatial mapping. We present reasons why performing spatial mappings at run-time is both necessary and desirable. We propose what is—to our knowledge—the first attempt at a formal description of spatial mappings for the embedded real-time streaming application domain. Thereby, we introduce criteria for a qualitative comparison of these spatial mappings. As an illustration of how our formalization relates to practice, we relate our own spatial mapping algorithm to the formal model.
