Significant improvements related to core problems, providing faster search algorithms and shortest plans have been proposed.\ud However, there is a lack in researches allowing a better support for a proper use and interaction with planners, where, for instance, visualization can play an important\ud role. This work proposes a way to address the problem of visualization in intelligent planning systems via a more general approach. It consists in an integrated ontology set and reasoning mechanism for multi-modality\ud visualisation destined to collaborative planning environments. This framework will permit organizing and modeling the domain from the visualization perspective, and give a tailored support for presentation\ud of information
