Top 10 Sites for Creating Word Clouds

"A text cloud or word cloud is a visualization of word frequency in a given text as a weighted list (wikipedia)." This is a concept that is utilized a lot in education for: visualization, brain storming, and mind mapping." While this can be done using paid applications such as Inspiration, there are a number of free sites that accomplish the same.

Top 10 Sites for Creating Word Clouds
  1. Wordle - Probably the oldest and most popular of the word cloud creators. Word clouds can then be edited w/ different fonts, colors, and layouts, and even shared w/ others online.
  2. Tagxedo - A great way to make word clouds from sites, different social networks, and then change shape to meet your needs (ie, star).
  3. Tagul - Similar to Tagxedo, a very easy to use site to create different shaped word clouds.
  4. Worditout - A nice site for making word clouds by just copying/pasting text.
  5. Word Sift - A excellent site for making word clouds and then editing them by altering the criteria in how it's created. Pictures are also generated to best represent your word cloud.
  6. VocabGrabber - A wonderful site similar to Word Sift in making word clouds. However, the clouds generated are color coded for best displaying clouds.
  7. Tag Galaxy - An innovative site that visually represents words in a galaxy style format. A must see!!!
