world cities, then the
populationare all dimensions.
string. String is used to represent text data. Anything from names to paragraphs can be stored using this type. Strings can be of varying length and include capital letters and special characters
number. Numbers are exactly as they sound. They can be both integers or floating-point numbers (think 5.6) and are interpreted by Akuko in a way that is distinct from text. This allows numbers to be used in aggregations, like sums and averages, which would result in errors with other data types.
boolean. Booleans are true or false, binary representations of 1s and 0s with a very limited set of allowed values. They are useful for conditional logic and filtering.
geo. Geolocation, or geo, is a spatial identifier used to display data on a map. Unlike other dimension types it requires to set two fields to be defined: latitude and longitude.
time. In order to create time series charts, Akuko needs to identify the time dimension. Not all time data is extremely precise, you might only have the day of the year in one dataset while snapshots with minutes and seconds in another one. For ease of comparison, precise time values are inferred from all the data and stored as timestamp, with precision up to the millisecond.
