Tag cloud

I've added a simple "tag cloud" showing frequency of the top 30 searches in iSpecies. It's a bit ugly, but you get the idea. You see the tag cloud if you go to iSpecies directly (i.e., no search term).

I made use of a nice article on scaling tag clouds by Anders Pearson. He describes a simple function to scale the tags. I put this into an Excel spreadsheet as a quick hack (in other words, the tag cloud isn't dynamic yet).

Dear Rod,
First, thanks for making available such a useful tool as Ispecies. If possible, I would like to suggest adding a line with the taxonomy of the species searched. Maybe using the GenBank taxbrowser is the easiest way as it also appears on the "genomics" results section.
Sincerely,
Frederic Delsuc

If you'd like to share your excel function for scaling tag clouds, that would be great, I'm trying to collect implementations in as many languages as possible.

If you want to generate a tag cloud on the web (without using excel) for data that you already have, then you can use the JavaScript TagCloud Generator available at

and clicking the "javascript cloud generator" link.
