Abstract : Software tools and corresponding knowledge tend to be collected and packaged into platforms like Eclipse, MathLab or KDE. Their success and usefulness combined with their growing size and complexity rise issues about management of dependencies between their components and between the platform and other applications which rely on its plug-in system and/or provided functionalities. Such problems imply need for dependencies management tools in which visualization is a core feature. As dependencies are also a concern in domains like Object-Oriented Programming or Operating System packaging, we may expect to reuse corresponding works in visualization. But each domain and its related dependencies problem have induced their own hard coded viewing and browsing tools. In this article we present how we have reuse existing visualization tools for our platform cartography together with our own displays using a Model-Driven Interoperability approach to easily realize bindings between visualization tools.
