Clear and Stable Visual Clutter for Tag Clouds
Tag clouds are a text-based visual depiction of tags (or words), typically used to display the relative tag frequency, popularity, or importance by font size. They can also serve as a visual summary of document content. In the last decade, tag clouds have proliferated over the web. They are now a common visualization in news sites for displaying the most active news story themes, photo sharing sites for conveying the distribution of image content, and social book marking sites for showing popular tags. In fact, several online programs are available that help users create their own tag clouds from different types of text sources.
