If the face-cycles at all the vertices in a map on a surface are of same type then the map is called semi-equivelar. There are eleven types of Archimedean tilings on the plane. All the Archimedean tilings are semi-equivelar maps. If a map X on the torus is a quotient of an Archimedean tiling on the plane then the map X is semi-equivelar. We show that each semi-equivelar map on the torus or on the Klein bottle is a quotient of an Archimedean tiling on the plane. Vertex-transitive maps are semi-equivelar maps. We know that four types of semi-equivelar maps on the torus are always vertex-transitive and there are examples of other seven types of semi-equivelar maps which are not vertex-transitive. We show that the number of Aut(Y)-orbits of vertices for any semi-equivelar map Y on the torus is at most six. In fact, the number of orbits is at most three except one type of semi-equivelar maps. Our bounds on the number of orbits are sharp. (C) 2018 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
