This page provides a great visual snapshot of global economic activity by looking at various countries' composite purchasing manager indices (PMIs) in a heat-map format. The composite PMI includes both manufacturing and services subindices. For PMIs, a level of 50 marks the difference between accelerating and decelerating growth, so above 50 indicates that economic activity is expanding and vice versa. Green indicates that economic growth is accelerating, while red indicates that economic growth is decelerating. This is a good proxy for what we can expect GDP growth to look like.
