Date Fri, 15 Mar 2019 01:06:00 GMT
Tim Swast` created PARQUET-1545:
-----------------------------------

             Summary: Logical Type for timezone-naive timestamps
                 Key: PARQUET-1545
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PARQUET-1545
             Project: Parquet
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Tim Swast`


{{In many systems there is a difference between a timezone-naive timestamp column (called
DATETIME in BigQuery, 'logicalType': 'datetime' in Avro) and a timezone-aware timestamp (called
TIMESTAMP in BigQuery and always stored in UTC). It seems from [this discussion|https://github.com/apache/parquet-format/pull/51#discussion_r119911623] and
the [list of logical types|https://github.com/apache/parquet-format/blob/master/LogicalTypes.md] that parquet
only has the timezone-aware version, as all timestamps are stored according to UTC.}}
