This document will review the design considerations, implementations and performance of the CMS Tracker Visualization tools. In view of the great complexity of this subdetector (more than 50 millions channels organized in 17000 modules each one of these being a complete detector), the standard CMS visualisation tools (IGUANA and IGUANACMS) that provide basic 3D capabilities and integration within CMS framework respectfully have been complemented with additional 2D graphics objects and a detailed object model of the tracker. Based on the experience acquired by using this software to debug and understand both hardware and software during the construction phase, we will propose possible future improvements to cope with online monitoring and event analysis during data taking.
