Wordle Tag Clouds

 

By Jim Byerly

 

Wordle is a word cloud generator.  A word cloud provides a way of visualizing text data.

 

A word cloud is visual representation of text displaying the most repeated words in different sizes which represent how frequently each word appeared in the text. The larger the word, the more frequently it occurs in the selected text. Here are some examples.


Using the text from the MnDOT Vision and Mission Wordle generated the following word cloud.
