Livability refers to the quality of life for inhabitants of an area. This is determined by aesthetics of an area, as well as the standards of living.

How is the livability indicator implemented in the Tygron Platform?

The right panel with the livability indicator selected.

The livability indicator uses a metric to indicate the current livability in an area. This is determined by not only what constructions or terrain type are in that exact location, but also the surrounding area. Generally speaking, luxury, low-density housing, combined with open spaces and natural aspects are beneficial for the livability. Densely constructed, cheap buildings will be detrimental to the livability.

How is the livability visualized?

Main article: Livability (Overlay).
The Livability indicator can be visualised using an overlay. This livability overlay displays the average livability for each part of the project detail area, giving an indication of where the livability is good / bad. This overlay becomes available for each stakeholder with an interest in the livability indicator

Indicator targets

The livability indicator has 1 value for a target.

Points given for physical appearance of a building. The higher the better.
The amount of points that should be scored for the livability to be sufficient.

Indicator properties

This indicator is a global indicator. This means the indicator and its target are the same for all stakeholders.

This indicator is represented with a progress bar, representing a scale of 0 to 100% score.

This indicator functions by calculation. The livability for an area depends on the type of construction or terrain present in that location, as well as the surrounding area. The average of all locations is the resulting score.

This indicator scores per zone. For each zone, a score for livability is calculated. The score on this indicator as a whole is the average of the scores per zone.

Stakeholders with this indicator also have access to the livability overlay.
