Data Source override

External resource in Vega configuration can referenced as shown in code below.

{
    "data": [{
        "name": "vectors",
        "url": "data/windvectors.csv",
        "format": {"type": "csv", "parse": "auto"}      
    }],
    .. 

Setting Data Source will modify the configuration above with actual values:

{
    "data": [{
        "name": "vectors",
        "values": [
            {
                longitude:7.5,
                latitude:4.3,
                ..
                speed:3.12
            },
            ..
        ]
    }],
    ..
