WORDLE and its use for visualising user data

Wordle is a tool for generating “word clouds” from text that the user provides. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. The user can choose different fonts, layouts, and colour schemes. The images that are created in Wordle can be printed out or posted on a website.

For more information on using and getting good results from Wordle see the attached briefing from Dr. Shailey Minocha (Department of Computing, The Open University, UK) - PDF
