There's a model for the hyperbolic plane which is the unit disc in the complex plane. Mobius transformations that map the unit disc to itself act as the rigid motions of the hyperbolic plane.

I referred to the complex numbers of modulus less than 1. That's the disk model.

Mathwonk is referring to the upper-half plane model, which is an equivalent way to think about it.
