A knowledge base can be very large containing many hundreds of objects and relationships. A graphical representation can assist in exploring and understanding the structure. The work discussed here is concerned with visualizing the knowledge structure in an expert system that has been developed for strategic planning. The method involves determining an initial layout for the structure followed by application of a fisheye viewing technique. Here we outline the approach taken to produce an initial layout of this complex structure.
