Word Cloud Visual

Devin Knight shows off the word cloud custom visual in Power BI:

Key Takeaways

  • Great for parsing unstructured data

  • Utilize stop words to remove commonly used filler words like a, the, an, etc…

    • You can use the default stop word that are provided and add your own that you would like to remove from the visual.
  • The size of the words in the visual tell you how frequently the word is used.

Cf. yesterday’s word cloud example.  I’m not sure how truly valuable word clouds are for visualization purposes, but at least they’re fun to peruse.
