Term Fountain visualizes word frequencies as a fountain. Each stream represents a unique word, where its height represents frequency the term occurred in the corpus.
When you first arrive to the Term Fountain tool you will see one of two possible screens:
Term Fountain with a pre-loaded corpus. You were probably given a URL that included the corpus, or you’re viewing a page that has an embedded Voyeur tool in it. If you prefer, you can also start without a corpus.
Term Fountain includes the standard set of interface elements (see image to the right). For more help with these see the Voyeur Tools Standard Interface Elements page.
After loading a corpus the tool will begin to generate a fountain. Hovering over a stream will display which word the stream represents. The height of the stream indicates the frequency with which the word occurs.
Like all Voyeur tools, Term Fountain can be reused in a variety of ways:
- create a link that is specific to the corpus and options that are currently being used
- embed the current corpus and options as a tool in an external page
For more information see exporting and reusing Voyeur Tools.
