SpatiaLite is an open source library intended to extend the SQLite core to support fully fledged Spatial SQL capabilities. SQLite is intrinsically simple and lightweight: a single lightweight library implementing the full SQL engine; standard SQL implementation: almost complete SQL-92; no complex client/server architecture; a whole database simply corresponds to a single monolithic file (no size limits); any DB-file can be safely exchanged across different platforms, because the internal architecture is universally portable; no installation, no configuration.
