A wordcloud is a image that is a collection of the most relevant, frequent and important words present in an article.
Word Clouds (also known as wordle, word collage or tag cloud) are visual representations of words that give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently. For Mentimeter Word Clouds, the words that are added most frequently by audience members using their smartphones. This type of visualization can help presenters to quickly collect data from their audience, highlight the most common answers and present the data in a way that everyone can understand.
In this project the wordcloud uses Wikipedia articles as a source of textual data.
There is a file that acts as a bag of words. This file is named StopWords.txt. The stopwords act as a filter to remove useless words like articles (a,an,the), two letter words and other less important 3 letter words.
