The great heptagonal tiling or gheat, also known as the heptagrammic-order heptagonal tiling, is a regular star tiling of the hyperbolic plane. 7 heptagons join at each vertex in a heptagrammic arrangement.

It is a second-order facetting of the order-7 triangular tiling. It is related to the spherical great dodecahedron, which is the second-order facetting of the regular icosahedron.
