What do the tick data represent

Hi! I am trying to convert my custom data source into the following format (probably very familiar to you, its the tick firmat in QC): 


The problem is i do not know what this format is. I,e what the column represents. My guess is this: 

14400000 = milliseconds since beginning of day
1674100 = price in cents
100 = volume 

plz advice or send a reference to your code base of mapping class.

Awesome platform!
