March 14, 2012I believe that this glsoasry shouldn’t be a closed matter, as we can still build on these concepts as a result of the Action.The final glsoasry, to be published in the final report (in my opinion), should be some ambitious (but concise) document that could work as a accessibility encyclopedia. Proposed changes and new conceptsAccuracy (of a model) – “it is the extent to which a model is able to capture and simulate a given set of phenomena by producing results that match reference datasets which may include experimental or observed data” (my own definition)Interpretability – The ability of making accessibility measures easy to understand by actors, especially non-experts, regardless of their complexity, by providing readable maps and meaningful indicators of all sorts (normalized values for indicators, monetary values, etc.) Instrument (Accessibility) A tool that aims to provide explicit knowledge on accessibility to actors in the planning domain. Mostly, they consist of computer model(s) that transfers data/information about urban systems into meaningful knowledge, by providing visualization tools such as maps or numerical indicators. Planning – “Planning, as a general activity is the making of an orderly sequence of action that will lead to the achievement of a stated goal or goals” (Peter Hall, Urban and Regional Planning, 4th edition)This is a much solid definition than the wikipedia’s one.Urban Simulation – “use of a wide range of modeling concepts to capture and reproduce any type of physical or socioeconomic phenomena observed in urban systems, allowing the forecast of potential evolutions under controlled conditions to assist planning or decision-making processes in general” (my own definition)Usability (of an instrument) – “a qualitative indicator of the extent to which an accessibility instrument is accepted and applied in planning or decision-making processes by its end-users” (my own definition)
