An introduction to Google BigQuery.
Data formats supported by BigQuery for loading and exporting.
BigQuery offers schema auto-detection when you load data and when you query external data.
BigQuery uses access control lists (ACLs) to manage permissions on projects and datasets.
BigQuery offers date-partitioned tables, which enable you to reduce bytes processed and improve query performance by limiting the amount of data scanned during a query.
Query Plan Explanation
BigQuery provides diagnostic information about a completed query's execution plan.
Authorizing API Requests
The Google BigQuery API uses OAuth 2.0 access tokens to authorize requests. If you use the BigQuery client libraries, this is done for you automatically.
