In this paper we design and implement an algorithm for computing symbolic dynamics for two dimensional piecewise-affine maps. The algorithm is based on detection of periodic orbits using the Conley index and Szymczak decomposition of Conley index pair. The algorithm is also extended to deal with discontinuous maps. We compare the algorithm with the algorithm based on tangle of fixed points. We apply the algorithms to compute the symbolic dynamics and entropy bounds for the Lozi map.
