Direct import CSV data into MD array in SciDB?


#1

I learnt from the SciDB users’ guide that to import data stored in either ASCII format or binary format into SciDB, the standard way is data in file -> one-dimensional load array in SciDB -> MD (multidimensional) array in SciDB. I wonder if there is some way to import data files directly into final MD array in SciDB without load array. This is because according to my experience, “redimension” operator is needed to transform load array into final MD array while this operator is indeed an expensive operation, i.e. takes a lot of time.
