Natural heritage is the composition between biodiversity and geodiversity; therefore, it is also a primary source of ecosystem services and geosystem services that have multiple benefits such as adaptation to climate change. However, it is mainly found in natural environments. On the other hand, due to climate change, there are cities around the world with extreme conditions such as heat or cold waves. The objective of this article is to analyses climate change mitigations through ecosystem and geosystem services in urban planning of cities using mapping science tools to take advantage of the benefits of natural heritage in cities. The methods are indicated in a) selection of the topic, keywords and scientific databases; b) pre-processing, merging of databases, and data processing using Bibliometrix-RStudio; and c) analysis and interpretation of results. A total of 1361 records were found in Scopus and 940 in the Web of Science, and the countries contributing to the subject are China, the United States, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom. In addition, the processing of the unified database made it possible to recognize i) conceptual and intellectual structure, research trends over time. Finally, geosystem services and ecosystem services help mitigate climate change through green infrastructure, blue infrastructure, and their adaptability to gray infrastructure, contributing to sustainable development goals: sustainable cities and communities and climate action.
