We propose a concept for a Shannon-type quantification of information relevant to a decision unit or agent. The proposed measure is operational, can - at least in principle - be calculated for a given system and has an immediate interpretation as an information quantity. Its use as a natural framework for the study of sensor evolution is discussed.
