Word Cloud Widget
The Word Cloud Widget is part of the Entity and Channel Dashboards available from their respective menus. It can also be added to a Custom Dashboard to provide top word analytics for either a specific Entity, or Channel.
FTS Apollo™ will analyze the most recent set of Articles and find the top 10 words used in those articles (removing the Stop Words.md) and then displaying them using the size of the words to indicate the relative frequency that they were used in the full set of articles.
The cloud gives a quick indication of what is going on in the articles being analyzed. In this case, the cloud is associated with a Channel and will give a quick, very accurate indication of what is happening in the news contained in the Channel.
Each word shown contains a link to a Text Search for that word within the context of the Channel being analyzed. When you click on the word, only the articles containing that word and contained within the channel will be shown.
The Word Cloud takes advantage of our enhanced widget capabilities which includes the ability to dynamically change the filter used to create the word cloud.
Clicking on the filter will open up the Widget Filter and allow you to make changes. The simplest change is to the Relevance Filter, typically from Low to High. This will give you a more focused word cloud.
Clicking on a word contained in the word cloud will give you the actual articles using that word from the set of articles that originally generated the word cloud.
