Project Description


I'm looking for a Flash and Actionscript expert that can create a Wordcloud.

I'm not looking for the standard 3D revolving worldcloud, I'm actually looking for a wordcloud that looks like the one in the example, except it has to be updated all the time. The words will be in a database. Based on the amount of occurances of the word, the word should be bigger and have a color. Basically the normal way of a wordcloud.

I'm thinking of having about 50 words in the wordcloud.

The database will produce two values for you: The first one is the Word itself and secondly, it's the amount of occurrences in the database.

These values will be produced as the result of a Query to the SQL-database.

When the Cloud is first opened it should generate a layout. When new words arrive in the list of 50 words, the word that is no longer in there shoud disappear but the new word should be inserted in the same place I think. All the words should also be linked to each other. So when a small word dissappears and is being replaces by a new word which is longer, the surrounding words should be adjusted accordingly. Also when the update happens, the layout should stay the same. I do not want the cloud to be generated again where all the words are in different places, I want it to update.

Also when a words gains importance and it grows, the other words surrounding it should adjust automatically.

If you're able to do this, please bid and if you already have some examples of wordclouds that you have created, add them to your offer so I can have a look.

I will require an SWF and the full project so I can adjust colors if needed, the database conection and the rate at which it will update the wordcloud. This will probably be 10 seconds. But this has to be tested during production by me.

Happy bidding!
