Some questions on parquet format catalogs and Qserv
I’ve had a look at
but was hoping someone could confirm a few things.
i) is there any plan to ingest/import parquet files directly into Qserv or will they always be first converted to TSV/CSV
ii) will the pipeline stack be generating FITS catalogs and converting to parquet catalogs or straight to parquet.
Both possibly TBD but just trying to get an idea of how parquet fits into the data-flow. Sounds like they might be used mainly for storing and distributing the catalogs.
