GeoPackage is an open data format defined by the Open Geospatial Consortium and used by GIS software. A GeoPackage file has the extension .gpkg and is a SQLite database with a custom schema.

The format is able to contain both raster and vector data.[1]

Extensions to the standard do exist. Some have been integrated back into the standard.[2]

Software support

This format is supported in QGIS, gvsig[3], udig[3], geoserver[3], MapServer[3], deegree[3], esri[3], mapinfo[3], fme[3], talend[3], geokettle[3], stetl[3].

GDAL (and thus also ogrinfo, ...) supports GeoPackage, with optional Spatialite support. For more info see the GDAL driver docs.

Obtaining a DB with OSM data

Some processed data providers provide GeoPackage files directly. Note that that page does not list all the formats for all the providers.

Otherwise you can download OSM in another format (for example the native PBF format) and use a tool to convert to GeoPackage.
