> Apache Parquet does not have any encodings suitable for FP data and the 
> available text compressors (zstd, gzip, etc) do not handle FP data very well.
> It is possible to apply a simple data transformation named "stream 
> splitting". Such could be "byte stream splitting" which creates K streams of 
> length N where K is the number of bytes in the data type (4 for floats, 8 for 
> doubles) and N is the number of elements in the sequence.
> The transformed data compresses significantly better on average than the 
> original data and for some cases there is a performance improvement in 
> compression and decompression speed.
