HeatMap Tap stream example
A linked streams example demonstrating how use Tap stream on a HeatMap. The data contains the incidence of measles across US states by year and week (obtained from [Project Tycho](http://www.tycho.pitt.edu/)). The HeatMap represents the mean measles incidence per year. On tap the Histogram on the right will generate a Histogram of the incidences for each week in the selected year and state.
