Towards gvSIG 2.4: SpatiaLite

At the next version of gvSIG Desktop we will find a series of improvements related to databases. One of them is the SpatiaLite support.

SpatiaLite is an SQLite database engine where spatial functions have been added. SQLite is a simple, solid, easy-to-use and swift Database Manage System (DBMS).

One of the main advantages is that each SQLite database is a file that can be copied, zipped and interchanged in an easy way.

In addition, Geopaparazzi (and the next gvSIG Mobile) works with this database, so this improvement will allow to interchange work data from our Desktop and Mobile GIS in an easy way.

Here you have a short video where we can see how a shapefile can be exported to SpatiaLite:

    Is there a tutorial about how to move a database from one station to another? Looks like I can’t reach it!

      Hi Dina, in the case of SpatiaLite, each SQLite database is a file, so you can copy from one station to another.
