Is there an equivalent of proprioception for objects? What is it called?

The brain is really good at keeping track of body position, limbs, etc., even when it's not looking at them.
Is there a term that describes the equivalent ability as it relates to objects? E.g., I'm sitting at my desk right now and I know there's a plant behind me. I want a term for that ability!
So far all I've got is "object propriception"
