I am looking to move a mess of shapefiles to a newer format, either Spatialite or Geopackage.

I have read that Spatialite can handle multiple users editing the same file more or less simultaneously. Is the same true for Geopackage?

Does one handle this sort of thing more easily than the other?

  • As far as I know, the formats are quite similar, and neither is intended for multiuser editing. – Micha Aug 28 '18 at 21:52

    GeoPackage based on SQlite which support multithreaded editing/reading. But it depends on library which implements GeoPackage functionality. For example GDAL open it in single mode (no multithreaded) per instance (2 different instances of GDAL, i.e. two simultaneous ogr2ogr, theoretically can edit the one GeoPackage). – Dmitry Baryshnikov Aug 29 '18 at 7:42
  • Not a full answer - but I just corrupted my Geopackage db by having it open in QGIS and Spatialite GUI as the same time. Switching to SQLite for now, but I suspect I'll get the same problem eventually. – dsz Jan 10 at 0:17
  • @dsz, how did the corruption happen? What were the consequences? – user30184 Jun 28 at 13:10
