This paper is concerned with proposing a fuzzy cognitive map (FCM) driven approach for implementing expert decision support in the area of urban design. Previous research activities modeled a knowledge-based system using first order predicate calculus. The current approach utilizes the inherent analogies between SLD resolution trees and FCMs and proposes the generation of multi-branch map hierarchies in order to model the disjointed conjuncts of the logic-based rules. This research proposes
