GeoFREDĀ® Now Featuring Enhanced Interface and International Data

ST. LOUIS – The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis has rolled out a suite of upgrades to its GeoFRED platform. Part of the FRED (Federal Reserve Economic Data) family, GeoFRED allows users to map many data series that exist in FRED.

Foremost among the upgrades is an enhanced homepage and user interface. The new site also contains blog posts and tutorials to help users get the most out of GeoFRED. Also, GeoFRED now has the ability to map international data available in FRED.  For example, users can create a map showing per capita GDP by country.

The new GeoFRED platform features an intuitive design, including double-click map zooms and tools menus. Users can also get data readings of a particular series by simply hovering the cursor over specific geographic areas, such as countries, states and MSAs.

The upper right-hand corner of every map offers a tools menu. Users can click to expand the menu and then change the data and the presentation of the map.

The FRED family includes GeoFRED for mapping, ALFRED for archival data and FRED for macroeconomic data. These resources have produced an unparalleled platform accessed by people from almost every country in the world.
