addressable space:  The memory size of a display board.  This area may be the same as or larger than the viewable area shown on the display screen, depending on the display board.  The object being displayed may be much larger than the addressable space.  If so, TNTmips asks you to select a portion of the object to be stored in the addressable space of the display board.  Some processes, such as draw processes, occur within the addressable space, rather than just the viewable space.
