    In this paper, a novel model for the representation of geographic environnements has been proposed called Holonic Virtual Geographic Environments, in which the holonic approach is employed as a computational geographic methodology and holarchy as organizational principle. Our approach allows automatically building virtual geographic environments using data provided by geographic information systems and enables an explicit representation of the geographic environment for multi-Agent systems in which agents are situated and with which they interact. Taking into account geometric, topologic, and semantic characteristics of the geographic environment, we propose the use of the holonic approach to build the environment holarchy. Our holonic model has been depicted using two different environments: an urban environment and a natural environment.
