We review recent trends in the art of Space Mapping (SM) technology for modeling and design of engineering devices and systems. The SM approach aims at achieving a satisfactory solution with a handful of computationally expensive so-called "fine" model evaluations. SM procedures iteratively update and optimize surrogates based on fast physically-based "coarse" models. Parameter extraction is an essential SM subproblem. It is used to align the surrogate (enhanced coarse model) with the fine model. Recent developments including TLM-based modeling and design using SM and the SM-based interpolating surrogates framework are discussed. Some practical applications are reviewed.
