In this paper, we derive geometric and analytic properties of invariant sets, including orbit closures, of a large class of piecewise-affine maps on. We assume that (i) consists of finitely many affine maps defined on a Borel measurable partition of, (ii) there is a lattice that contains all of the mutual differences of the translation vectors of these affine maps, and (iii) all of the affine maps have the same linear part that is an automorphism of. We prove that finite-volume invariant sets of such piecewise-affine maps always consist of translational tiles relative to this lattice, up to some multiplicity. When the partition is Jordan measurable, we show that closures of bounded orbits of are invariant and yield Jordan measurable tiles, again up to some multiplicity. In the latter case, we show that compact -invariant sets also consist of Jordan measurable tiles. We then utilize these results to quantify the rate of convergence of ergodic averages for in the case of bounded single tiles.
