Building a Tag Cloud


Demo Instructions & Notes:
  1. Notice below the tag cloud allows your eyes to quickly focus on the "larger sized" words. This technique can be used to distinguish more important or relevant information from large data sets.

Concepts shown in demo:
Silveright does not include a tag cloud control. However, using mashup controls, it is pretty easy to build one in Silverlight and Expression Blend. This type of extensibility will allow you to create your own custom business intelligence controls (i.e., bullet graphs, trellises, etc.)
