A tiling is a tessellation of the plane and an isohedral tiling is a tiling in which all tiles are related by a symmetry of the tiling. One can categorize these tilings into 93 types. The definition leads to a compact symbolic encoding. We will focus on some computational aspects of isohedral tilings and also have a look at an implementation.
