Visual memory/spatial memory

Is there a term for the ability to know where a line of text would be on a page? This would not be "photographic memory" - instant and accurate recall of the line - but rather, more along the lines of "I know the line was on a left-hand page, in the top quarter of the page."

I've Googled "visual memory," "spatial memory," "text," "page," and combinations thereof. I also found pages where people mentioned they had this ability ("where is text on a page?") but no one used a term for this ability.

Thanks!
