Word Cloud Tools  

A word cloud, or also known as a tag cloud, is a visualization of text data. Word clouds show keywords or tags on websites  and provide a larger view of the most important words in a piece of text. Word clouds can be used creatively for many assignments, helping identify the main ideas of text.
