Wordle Clouds

Saturday, October 4th 2008 by Pat

I’ve been playing with the wordle application and wanted to share my excitement, this thing is slick!

The word cloud here was generated using all the text from our posts to this site, the more often a word is used, the bigger it’s printed. Some of the boring, common words get weeded out and then the application allows you to mess around with colors and layout.

The best part is that you can get your wordles in scalable formats which paves the way for large scale printing. I had much more text to draw from in the old Orphan Army database so I dumped that into a bigger field. I didn’t do any filtering on this aside from the defaults… I really like just need to learn some new words.
