Hi Carlos,

welcome to the list.

As for your question:

'de iure' definitely there isn't it.

'de facto' I do not think so, although better OWL experts than me might 
have another opinion here. In any case, there are a number of systems 
that do graphical representations. These include some of the ontology 
editor tools (eg, protege, more exactly the various plugins for it), or 
stand alone visualizers (like OWLSight). You can also use RDF 
visualizers (eg, RDF Gravity) to visual an RDF representation of the 
ontology.

may give some pointers (updates are welcome!)

Cheers

Ivan
