Lets the user link to a specific place within a web page instead of just linking to the top of the document.
a link within a page
When you create a link you will need to "target" where and how that link opens up a new page. The default is to open it within the current window. If you create a link external to your site, you may want to set the target to _blank so that the link opens in a new window.
the associated file, folder, or URL for a Montage Shortcut or a Windows link. When a Montage Shortcut is open, the target window is the one belonging to the external application or form launched by that Shortcut. You can examine or change the setting of a Shortcut's target via the Properties dialog. Note that there is a difference terminology between Montage and Windows as to the target of a Shortcut. In Montage, the target is just a path to a file, folder, or URL, with any optional arguments being specified separately in a second Args field. In the Windows shortcut properties dialog, the field labeled "Target" contains the combination of these two components, forming a complete command line. Note that another meaning of target applies in the context of drag-and-drop operations: the "drop target" is the object onto which the thing being dragged (the drop source) is dropped. For example the drop source could be a Shortcut or a link, which has its own fixed target. That target is not the same as the target of the drop, which depends on where you choose to drop it.

An area of sky observed by GALEX together with the spacecraft-motion and instrument commands used for that observation. Note that because the commanded spacecraft motion can be complex, a target can have a complex shape. In particular, All-sky Imaging Survey (AIS) targets are composed of several separate pointings, which may or may not overlap. Also note that the same geometric part of the sky (see Primary Tile) may be observed in both direct and grism modes, making two targets. A target can be roughly described as a primary tile plus an optical wheel setting. Targets may overlap one another. Most targets will consist of a single, roughly-circular, 1.25 degree diameter GALEX field of view, or, for AIS targets, a series of overlapping fields of view.

A target is the device to which the initiator sends data. Most commonly the target is the storage array, but the term also applies to bridges, tape libraries, tape drives or other devices.
1. (of a constructed stream constituent of the constructed stream. The target of a synonym stream is the value of its synonym stream symbol. 2. (of a displaced array) the array to which the displaced array is displaced. (In the case of a chain of constructed streams or displaced arrays, the unqualified term " target" always refers to the immediate target of the first item in the chain, not the immediate target of the last item.)
How many of your population you expect will change based on your initiative. For example, do you expect 80% of students in a school to improve in some way? Or do you expect to find jobs for 100 residents? As with all components of indicators, your target for your long-term outcome should be set by combining your vision for change with a realistic assessment of your resources. Targets for all other outcomes should be based on how many people need to change in order for it to be enough for the next outcome in the pathway to occur. For example, if only 20 people take a literacy class, would you be able to raise overall literacy rates in your community by the amount you want
