When exoprting data in QGIS, I can choose between SpatiaLite and SQLite files. Both files get the file extension .sqlite.
What is the difference between these export formats? Is it a different data structure or something? How does someone else know, whether I am providing a SpatiaLite or a SQLite file? Are there any differences in compatibility or performance?
Googling the difference only gives confusing answers that SpatiaLite is a spatial extension to SQLite. But why then can I export spatial content to a SQLite file?
