Cyberworlds are being formed on the Web either intentionally or spontaneously, with or without design. Widespread and intensive local activities are melting each other on the Web globally to create cyberworlds. What is called e-business including electronic financing has been conducted in cyberworlds and has crossed a national finance level in its scale. Without proper modeling, cyberworlds will continue to grow chaotic and will soon be out of human understanding. A novel information model we named “a cellular model” serves to globally integrate local models. As an information model, it is applicable to the category of irregular data models that capture spatio-temporal aspects as situations. Mathematically, it is based on cellular spatial structures in a homotopy theoretical framework and is an extension of graph theory
