Grigorchuk's group of intermediate growth can be represented, through its action on the infinite binary rooted tree, as the automorphism group of a regular map G on a non-compact surface. A theory of growth of maps is developed, and it is shown that G has intermediate growth. Some compact and non-compact quotients of G are described, and it is shown how these ideas may be extended to the generalised Grigorchuk groups
