In order for physicists to easily benefit from the different existing geometry tools used within the community, the Virtual Geometry Model (VGM) has been designed. In the VGM we introduce the abstract interfaces to geometry objects and an abstract factory for geometry construction, import and export. The interfaces to geometry objects were defined to be suitable to describe "geant-like" geometries with a hierarchical volume structure. The implementation of the VGM for a concrete geometry modeldoi:10.5170/cern-2005-002.345 fatcat:pru6mwi25fbg7il7j57kus7xjm
