For road and residence in large-scale urban map data are separated from each other, it is difficult to study their correlation. However, as road is tightly related to residence, it is necessary to deeply explore the connection and establish the clear correlation between them. In the paper, excellent characteristics of urban skeleton network were utilized to establish distinct correlation between road and residence and new comprehensive idea were provided for overall collaboration and integration of road and residence.
