TextArc : Interesting way to view text

Ever wondered how would it be like to read a text in graphical fashion ??

[TextArc]( is nice tool which lets you view text as interesting patterns, word associations and frequencies of each word in a text. It will look as a cobweb of words n words at the first look :P

Make sure you go through the **Help** in the Applet to check out how this works. Here is a small screenshot taken while the applet reads Hamlet by Shakespeare.


Some quick notes :

- The whole text is organised in an arc fashion..with the words which appear more often being highlighted.


Some more screenshots with proper explanations are available here
