Cities By Wikipedia Word Clouds A-Z

Try to guess each city based on a cloud of words describing the city. Also, each cloud is shaped like the city's first letter.
A word cloud is a collection of the most common words in a text. The more common a word, the larger it appears in the word cloud.

This is cool, but I think it would be better if you removed the country/language names...then you'd have to actually look for clues. As is all the clues are like 'Russia/Y', 'Pakistan/K', only one answer

Fun quiz!

A criticism of your source, not you at all:

How is Vancouver a North Canadian city?!? *shakes head*

+12
Level 78
Dec 9, 2021
I believe the word cloud just includes words that are in the Wikipedia article and makes them bigger the more they appear? So North there could just be referring to North Vancouver, and is not necessarily directly linked with the word Canadian. It certainly isn't related to the word "city" since it's a different colour entirely.

Exactly and you've also got other terms like 'North America' and 'Hollywood North' which add to the size of the word, complementing Vancouver's famous northernly location :)

Maybe take the word 'city' out of the word cloud? Since they are all, obviously, cities? Your word cloud compiler likes to throw in a large 4-letter word, and it appears that's nearly always city. Its huge on C G I N and X, and in V its there three times.

I don't believe they made the word cloud themselves. You can't upload your own pictures so making your own wouldn't work
