In courses at the Mannheim University of Applied Sciences, data visualizations prototypes on various topics are developed following recent design and research approaches. This page documents the projects designed by the students.
A visualization system for public transit planners and policy makers to better understand and explore passenger demands. Running on large multi-touch tabletop, the system enables experts to investigate how delays and passenger load might affect each other through a zoomable Marey chart.
Visualizing GPS-tracked bike rides to better understand cycling behaviour. The system allows to interactively analyze bicycle traffic by visualizing rides tracked and shared by cyclists through a mobile app.
I am a teaching the following courses at Mannheim University of Applied Sciences:
