FRED Measles Epidemic Simulator

FRED (A Framework for Reconstructing Epidemiological Dynamics) is a freely available open-source agent-based modeling system for exploring the spatial and temporal patterns of epidemics.

This site shows possible outbreaks following the introduction of a single measles case in selected US cities. The model shows the importance of a high vaccination rate in providing protection for the entire community.
