WordOrientation

is an option for WordCloud that specifies the orientations in which words appear.

Details

  • Possible settings for WordOrientation include:
  • "Horizontal"all horizontal
    "Vertical"all vertical
    θall at angle θ
    "HorizontalVertical"almost half horizontal, half vertical
    {"HorizontalVertical",f}fraction f of the words are horizontal; the rest are vertical
    "Random"randomly select from the range
    {θ1,θ2}word rotations randomly taken from the range {θ1,θ2}
    {{θ1,θ2,}}randomly select from the list of rotations θi
  • Rotation angle θi represents words rotated counterclockwise by θi radians.
  • For all settings allowing random choices of angle the RandomSeeding option to WordCloud can be used to determine the seeding of the randomness used.
