We describe a role-based multiple view approach to support sharing and coordination of knowledge in geo-collaborative planning. The software co-ordinates multiple unshared role-specific views with one shared team view. The rationale for this approach is that: (1) it affords clear separation between role-specific and shared knowledge; (2) it leverages experts' knowledge to filter out role-specific details; and (3) it promotes implicit sharing of strategic knowledge (i.e. about roles). We illustrate the key features implemented in a prototype to evaluate this approach, describe design requirements extracted from a paper prototype study, and discuss relevant design issues.
