We show that every linearly repetitive Delone set in the Euclidean -space , with , is equivalent, up to a bi-Lipschitz homeomorphism, to the integer lattice . In the particular case when the Delone set in comes from a primitive substitution tiling of , we give a condition on the eigenvalues of the substitution matrix which ensures the existence of a homeomorphism with bounded displacement from to the lattice for some positive . This condition includes primitive Pisot substitution tilings but also concerns a much broader set of substitution tilings.
