Word cloud – an overview
What is it for?
This template allows you to create an impressive visualization of the most common words in a piece of text.
How to get started
TIP: You can use free resources such as writewords.org.uk to determine word frequency in a text.
The Word limit option controls the maximum number of words to be visualized.
Through the Cloud style options, you can choose between different fonts, increase the spacing and also try different layouts through Layout number. You are also able to switch between linear scaling, logarithmic scaling, and scaling calculated as the square root of the count.
Through the Animation settings, you are able to switch between different styles of the animation produced when the visualization loads. Auto mode will use Grow when there are fewer than 100 words visible, Fade if there are fewer than 500, and None if there are 500 or more.
You can also add popups and panels to your word cloud. Here we have added column D to the "Info for popups", data binding. If you then go to the Popups and panels settings you can customise the style and text in your popup.
