#' map

#' Displays a map outlining the MSOAs within Tower Hamlets, filling with a colour derived from the supplied data
#' @param data a data.table (or data.frame) containing a column "MSOA" containing the MSOA code and

#' @param minColour colour for the lowest value of the data
#' @param maxColour colour for the lowest value of the data
