Neutrino oscillation experiments in the past decades have greatly improved our knowledge on neutrinos by measuring the fundamental neutrino parameters. The ongoing and upcoming neutrino oscillation experiments are intended to pin down the neutrino mass hierarchy and to discover the leptonic CP violation. By means of neutrino oscillograms, we analyze the impact of nonstandard neutrino interactions on neutrino oscillations in Earth matter. The standard neutrino oscillation probabilities may be significantly changed by nonstandard interaction parameters, and, in particular, the CP-violating effects in the energy range E = 1-20 GeV are greatly enhanced. In addition, the event rates of muon neutrinos in the proposed huge atmospheric neutrino experiment, PINGU at the South Pole, have been estimated in the presence of nonstandard neutrino interactions. It has been found that the PINGU experiment has very good sensitivities to the nonstandard neutrino interaction parameters.
