addressable

Reachable. When something is addressable, it can be accessed and manipulated independently of its surroundings. For example, screen pixels and RAM (memory) are addressable. Each of the screen's picture elements can be individually adjusted, and each of the memory bytes can be written and read independently of the rest.
