When dealing with large datasets, it's useful to be able to query the data based on some arbitrary conditions. Also, it's more reliable to store the data in a database rather than in a flat file or as an in-memory resource. The Incanter library provides us with several useful functions to perform these operations, as we will demonstrate in the code example that will follow.

[congomongo "0.4.1"] [incanter "1.5.4"]
For the upcoming example, the namespace declaration should look similar to the following declaration:
(ns my-namespace (:use incanter.core ...
