In literature:

Speaking in more general terms, we adopt spatial relation as the perfect example of intelligible relation.

In news:

Over the past 200 years or so, the Anglican Communion has been working out how to be spatially catholic, how its autonomous churches relate to one another as local and universal.
Specifically, the objective was to evaluate the spatial distribution of water pipe breaks relative to soil conditions and climate patterns in University Park, Texas.
Unfortunately, depiction of spatial relations inside these line bundles is often difficult but critical for understanding the represented structures.

In Section 3 we apply the formalism to the case of General Relativity and we find an explicit expression for the variation of energy of spatially bounded gravitating systems.
