suitability maps in CA_MARKOV

Dear all,

After reading some articles about simulation of land-use changes with the CA_MARKOV module I still have a doubt about the suitability maps (also called transition potentiel maps). Do the high values for a cell in these maps mean a high probability to find a particular land use in this cell at the end of the simulation or do they mean a high probability to be convert in an other land use type? How do the CA_MARKOV module interpret these maps as input?

Thanking you in advance for answering.

Best regards,
