Congratulations, you’re ready to ingest some data. If you’ve made it this far you should already have some data indexed, and want to tile it up into a faster storage format or projection system.
An Ingestion Configuration file defines a mapping from the way one set of Datasets is stored, into a new storage scheme for the data. This will be recorded in the index as a new Product, and the data will be manipulated and written out to disk in the new format.
An Ingestion Config is written in YAML and contains the following:
- which measurements are stored
- what projection the data is stored in
- what resolution the data is stored in
- how data is tiled
- where the data is stored
- how the data should be resampled and compressed
Multiple ingestion configurations can be kept around to ingest datasets into different projections, resolutions, etc.
