Make shaped word clouds with Tagxedo

Posted to Misc. Visualization  |  Tags: , ,  |  Nathan Yau

Love ’em or hate ’em, tag clouds, or the more recent incarnation, Wordles, are everywhere (especially in slide presentations). Well, Wordle wasn’t enough. I mean, you can’t even make shapes with it. Gees. That’s where Tagxedo comes in. It works pretty much just like Wordle, except you have one more option. You can select from a variety of shapes to arrange your words into. Score.
