Communication technology and Internet technology have changed the human activity patterns.Human activity patterns extend from geographic space to the virtual network space.It created a new space crossing thegeographical restrictions,which is in parallel with geographical space--Cyberspace.Cyberspace and the geographical space are tremendous different.The exploration and activities have been beyond the scope of normal cognition.On the other hand,the cyberspace is closely related to geographical space.The object of Cyberspaceresearch is different from the traditional object of geography.Cyberspace is more complicated than geographical space,how to cognize and express Cyberspace,it is an extremely urgent and difficultchallenge. Theissue is aim at the demandof cognizing Cyberspace,analyzes the spatial and temporal characteristics of Cyberspace. By means of researching themapping mechanism between cyberspace and geo-space, constructs the theories and geographicalcognitivemodels of Cyberspace.Based on the theory ofcartography,builds themapping model of cyberspace.Through the visualization algorithm based on geo-space,realizesthe visualization ofcyberspace and provides the basis of theoryand technical support of cognizing and analysisCyberspace.
