Consider writing out each point type in full and putting the range of numbers that is supports beside the point type name, making sure the the names are aligned in their own "column" and that the ranges are aligned in their own "column".

Examples:
Float32 → 32-bit floating-point         (−3.402823E+38 – 3.402823E+38)
Int16     → 15-bit unsigned integer   (0 – 32767)
Int32     → 32-bit signed integer       (−2127450880 – 2127483647)
String   → String                               (972 bytes if annotated, 976 bytes otherwise)
Blob      → Binary large object          (972 bytes if annotated, 976 bytes otherwise)
