You get a choice of "filtered" and "unfiltered" versions. What
sort of filtering was done? Does this correspond to the
distinction within the Extended Penn World Table between the raw
series and those "corrected for the business cycle"?

I have a suggestion for making the graphs more readily
comprehensible: use colors, and display separate graphs for the
filtered and unfiltered versions. With four dot-pattern lines on
one graph (the default) it's not easy to understand what's going
