Wordle – Tool for Generating Word Clouds from Text

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide and it’s also a learning tool for visualizing and analyzing text. 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. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

Wordles can be formatted with different fonts, layouts and colour schemes. They can be printed or captured for use in other applications such as word processors, presentation programs or graphics tool. Plug a block of text, a URL, or even delicious bookmarks into Wordle, and it generates a word cloud a graphic that amplifies font sizes of words based on how frequently they are used in the material you’ve provided.

It could be useful as the cover of some paper you have to write for college, or for printing a t-shirt with some personal design. This last option, of course, can be done through the right process offered in many photograph shops.

Wordle.net is a good place to stop by because it gives you useful information about stencil clouds and other techniques you can use to create, design, and print your word clouds.  It has a complete gallery of designs which were made by other users, for you to get ideas. Once you make your Word Clouds, you can store them at that public gallery, but you must be aware that it will be available for download by any user. If you don’t want this to happen, you should print your own copy without saving it on the site.
