The archive Electronic Geometry Models is a new electronic journal for the publication of digital geometry models from a broad range of mathematical topics. The geometry models are distinguished constructions, counter examples, or results from elaborate computer experiments. Each submitted model has a self-contained textual description and is peer reviewed, and later reviewed by the Zentralblatt für Mathematik.

This paper gives in depth information about the principle ideas behind this service and discusses various technical issues. In particular, we show how XML related techniques are applied.
