Subject [jira] [Created] (ARROW-637) [Format] Add time zone metadata to Timestamp type
Date Thu, 16 Mar 2017 02:13:41 GMT
Wes McKinney created ARROW-637:
----------------------------------

             Summary: [Format] Add time zone metadata to Timestamp type
                 Key: ARROW-637
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-637
             Project: Apache Arrow
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Format
            Reporter: Wes McKinney


As a metadata-only convenience, it would be useful to have an optional Olson time zone name
in the {{Timestamp}} flatbuffers type: https://github.com/apache/arrow/blob/master/format/Message.fbs#L94

Null or length-0 string would indicate that the data has no time zone (UTC)
