semantically ordered tag clouds that resemble self-organizing maps. the size of the text & the color brightness of the background represent the frequency of the different terms. this technique has been applied to visualize the keywords present in website favorites, or the tags used by different del.ico.us users for the same web pages.

A tag cloud but even less readable?

erm… maybe statistically but _semantically_?

Hi,

just wanted to let you know that I posted an update at:http://well-formed-data.net/archives/42/tag-maps-update

The maps now feature also interactivity, a freshness measure for tags as well as an "elastic list" representation and some frequency statistics. You can now also explore the long tail of tagging, especially how it is composed of lots of smaller long tail distributions - you can click on a tag to see correlated tags and their distribution.

exactly, semantically? which part reveals the semantics? more like statistics...
