City spatial cognition research included cognition of place name, city image, cognitive distance and cognitive distortion. The national research of spatial cognition began in the 1980s, focusing mainly on the city image. Research of place name is more focused on the origin and meaning, less involved in the form of space. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the pattern of cognitive space based on a large number of questionnaires, then explored it’s genesis deep. The main methods are spatial interpolation of ARCGIS and spatial autocorrelation of Geoda095i. Four conclusions were obtained as follows: Firstly, the type of cognitive point is not the influencing factor of cognitive rate. Secondly, the spatial cognitive pattern showed a ">-shaped pattern". The two peaks of Beijing Railway Station and Peking Zoo uplifted in the northwest - southeast direction, and saddle lied in lower Sogo Department Store in low recognition rate area. Thirdly, the cognition of residents had clear spatial relevance and scale-dependent. Cognition among sites is high-high, low-low comparability in less spatial level, but it is high-low otherness in larger spatial level. 6km is their boundary. Fourthly, cognitive space can be divided into four sub-regions: Beihai Park, Zhongyou Department Store, Peking Zoo, and Chengxiang Entrepot. The sub-region is homogeneously high cognition area, and contains many cognition peaks.
