We briefly review and summarize the results in research of China High Technology Networks(CHTN), which can be composed by three levels. A weighted framework is put forward and can be used to study some similar networks. According to our idea and method, the CHTN is constructed. Then the CHTN’s topological properties are investigated, including degree distribution, shortest path length, clustering coefficient, degree-degree correla-tion and community structure. The quantitative results can be helpful for promoting management and adjusting structures of the CHTN.
