Usually people discuss only pressure dependent phase transformations in case of either tin dioxide or titanium dioxide. It would be nice if someone gave the phase diagram for tin dioxide.

Anatase and rutile phases form in $\ce{TiO2},$ the presence of cationic dopants or impurities significantly affect the transformation kinetics and phase stability [1]. It should be noted that anatase is metastable at all temperatures and pressures.
