The Most Popular Minerals in the Geoblogosphere
Alright, so a lot of people have responded to Chuck’s post about 50 essential minerals. I’ve created two tag clouds (similar to the tag clouds that Brian Romans wrote about back in May) that show the most popular minerals people have posted about so far.
I think this data makes much more sense than my previous try, which just combined ALL the data in a single tag cloud.
UPDATE: I think I will redo entire this word cloud. Since most people are using Chuck’s original list and also adding some of their own minerals, I might try to break this down into two lists. Otherwise the relative sizes of many of the minerals won’t change since it will be included on everyone’s list. This is probably what I will end up creating…
1.) The Most Popular Minerals Observed in the Field
2.) The Most Popular Minerals Observed in a Museum / Lab
UPDATE 2: Done!
