Till Nagel is a Carl Zeiss Foundation Endowed Professor of Visual Analytics at the Mannheim University of Applied Sciences. His research interests are in the fields of information visualization, interaction design and data literacy. He heads the Human Data Interaction Lab, which investigates new ways of supporting different target groups with interactive data representations. In recent years, one major focus of his research were urban data and mobility visualizations, and in the democratization of visualization tools. He is the project lead of Unfolding Maps, a widely used software library for geovisualizations and interactive maps. He was the general chair of the IEEE VIS Arts Program 2018 and 2019.
Till has a background in media and computer science, and received his PhD at the Human Computer Interaction group at KU Leuven. He was a visiting scholar at the MIT Senseable City Lab in Boston and Singapore, and a postdoctoral fellow at the FHP Urban Complexity Lab. Since 2006 he is a lecturer on data visualization and user interfaces, and taught courses at Potsdam University of Applied Sciences, IUAV Venice, and other universities. Before his current position in Mannheim, he was a guest professor at Burg Giebichenstein University of Arts and Design Halle. His work has been exhibited at Venice Biennale of Architecture, Shanghai Design Exhibition, DMY Berlin, and featured in The Guardian, Esquire, Süddeutsche Zeitung, and many more.

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.
A comparative visualization environment of urban bike mobility designed to help citizens casually analyze three bike-sharing systems in the context of a public exhibition space.
I am a teaching the following courses at Mannheim University of Applied Sciences:
