Spatial Anchors

This section will guide you on how to use Spatial Anchors, a shared reference point for tethering virtual content to a persistent physical location.


Magic Leap 1 used the term PCF (Persistent Coordinate Frame) to describe our previous system of anchoring virtual content. Differences between PCFs and Spatial Anchors can be found on the Spatial Anchors Overview Page


This feature requires the SPATIAL_ANCHORS permission to be enabled in your project's Manifest Settings. (Edit > Project Settings > Magic Leap > Manifest Settings)
