Map presentation of geographical information based on GIS is an urgent problem lying in current GIS and cartography. Handling of features' relationship is the key in automatic-mapping. However, the discover and disposal of spatial conflict is the lowest degree of automation in cartography. A lot of work is still in handwork. After analyzing the data in the scale of 1:50,000 and 1:250,000, this article summarizes the relationship of cartographic features as overlapping-relation, attachment-relation and collision-relation. Combined with the data, the article put forward the method which is related to each of relationship.
