Abstract

Using word clouds to visualize dynamic time-varying data is a field still under-explored. The goal of our approach is to provide a novel way of generating smoothly animated word clouds to show changes in word frequency via font size. Unlike existing methods, a compact layout, inspired by the popular word cloud generation tool Wordle, is preserved during animation and implemented using web technologies.Word size changes in time are also illustrated via color and word rotation.
