Let G be a simple graph. The transformation graph G++− of G is the graph with vertex set V (G) ∪ E (G) in which the vertex x and y are joined by an edge if and only if the following condition holds:(i) x, y ∈ V (G) and x and y are adjacent in G, (ii) x, yE (G), and x and y are adjacent in G, (iii) one of x and y is in V (G) and the other is in E (G), and they are not incident in G. In this paper, it is shown G++− is planar if and only if |E (G)| ≤ 2 or G is isomorphic to one of the following graphs: C3, C3 + K1, P4, P4 + K1, P3 + K2, P3 + K2 + K1, K1,3, K1,3 +K1, 3K2, 3K2 + K1, 3K2 + 2K1, C4, C4 + K1.
