In geometry, the truncated tetraheptagonal tiling is a uniform tiling of the hyperbolic plane. It has Schläfli symbol of tr{4,7}. Geometry is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the field of geometry is called a geometer. In mathematics, hyperbolic geometry is a non-Euclidean geometry. The parallel postulate of Euclidean geometry is replaced with: In geometry, the Schläfli symbol is a notation of the form {p,q,r,...} that defines regular polytopes and tessellations.

The dual to this tiling represents the fundamental domains of [7,4] (*742) symmetry. There are 3 small index subgroups constructed from [7,4] by mirror removal and alternation. In these images fundamental domains are alternately colored black and white, and mirrors exist on the boundaries between colors.
