HXL hashtag word clouds

Henrik Sjökvist, a volunteer at the Centre for Humanitarian Data, has put together preliminary word clouds for the human-readable text headers associated with different hashtags in the HXL datasets on the Humanitarian Data Exchange (HDX). These images do not (yet) take attributes into account, but they provide an interesting insight into how people are using the HXL humanitarian data standard in the wild.

You might also be interested in HXL Tag Assist, which shows HXL hashtags in the context of the datasets using them.
