Abstract: 

In current settlement planning, settlements are either rural or urban. In reality, human settlements are more diverse than this dichotomy. Current definitions of rural and urban settlements are not comprehensive from political, administrative and scientific points of view and show lack of attention to various factors that shape human settlements and their status. In other words, changing the status of a settlement based on public demand might not change the real status of a settlement, .Application of models based on fuzzy logic as a relative approach in identification and classification of human settlements provides a better and more diverse framework for human settlement classification based on various social, environmental and economic factors. Changing the status of a settlement from rural to urban without considering the role of such factors will not only increase the public expenditures, but also increase public expectations and demands for more services. Identification of more populated rural settlements in demand of changing from rural to urban settlements will help planners and policy makers to make better decisions when trying to accept or reject the status of a settlement. The main aim of this study is to use fuzzy logic to identify rural settlements that are suitable for getting the city status. Rural settlement in Tehran province in Iran has been selected as case study.
