The self-similarity (fractal characteristics) of the unique gully landform of Loess Plateau has been demonstrated adequately. Urban spatial distribution rooted in the landform also has an obvious feature of self-similarity, to forms a relatively stable and harmonious relationship between human being and nature over the past thousands of years. With the rapid development of energy industries and urbanization in Northern Shaanxi, the soil erosion and other ecological problems are getting intense. The contradiction between loess gully landforms, which is a regional and critical ecological factor, and urban spatial development becomes sharper. It brings a tremendous impact on existing relationship between human being and nature. With the help of fractal theory, this research made a coupled correlation study between the topography, which in Northern Shaanxi energy-rich region with fractal characters, and the urban spatial form, so as to explore a realistic way for urban spatial development adapted to landscape environment in Northern Shaanxi . Hopefully, this paper will provide a reference for other research about urban spaces in ecologically sensitive areas
