Under the background of knowledge economy, knowledge plays an increasingly important role in the construction and development of the national economy. As the basic support system for knowledge exploration, discovery, innovation and communication, the construction of knowledge infrastructure is related to the national innovation and development strategy. This paper discusses the rules and requirements of knowledge infrastructure construction from the two dimensions of virtual and real structure and spatial hierarchy. In terms of virtual and real structure, the construction of knowledge infrastructure should accurately grasp the respective advantages and functions of physical knowledge infrastructure and virtual knowledge infrastructure based on information technology, and promote the coordinated development of the two infrastructures. In terms of spatial planning and construction, the construction of knowledge infrastructure should be promoted step by step from the national macro strategic level to the village and town communities according to the hierarchical overall planning of the development stages of each region.
