Excel Tag Clouds

Here’s a pointer to an excellent Microsoft Excel tutorial that discusses how to create word tag clouds in excel. Specifically, it shows you how to insert Wordle tag clouds in your excel dashboards.

What is a tag cloud? It’s an information visualization device that represents the weight, frequency and overall relevance of certain terms in a document. For example, here’s a tag cloud for the Springstein song, “Born in the USA”:

It was created in wordle.net.

Cool, right? But did you know that you can bring that wordle tag cloud into your excel dashboard?

Thanks to the Cleary and Simply blog by Robert Mundigl we have this excellent discussion of integrating wordle and excel. Take a look at
