Wordle and other Word Cloud Tools



Wordle : Beautiful Visualization

http:www.wordle.net/compose
Wordle is a tool for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. Use Wordle to describe yourself, someone you know, a historical figure, or a character from a book. Paste text from a document to show theme, frequency of word usage, etc.

Tagxedo turns words -- famous speeches, news articles, slogans and themes, etc., -- into a visually stunning tag cloud, words individually sized appropriately to highlight the frequencies of occurrence within the body of text. Tagxedo differs from other word cloud applications in that it allows you to select from shape templates or to select your own graphical representation shapes.
