Words, pictures

"We present a visualization of all the nouns in the English language arranged by semantic meaning. Each of the tiles in the mosaic is an arithmetic average of images relating to one of 53,463 nouns. The images for each word were obtained using Google's Image Search and other engines. A total of 7,527,697 images were used, each tile being the average of 140 images... By clicking on top of the map, you will see the word corresponding to that location, the average image and the first 16 images returned by the image search online tools."
