The new GeoPackage ‘Spatial Manager’ data provider will allow you to import into your drawings (AutoCAD, BricsCAD, ZWCAD) or load/import into your SPM maps (Desktop) graphic elements and attached data tables directly from GeoPackage files (*.gpkg) or by defining a SPM User Data Source that will enable you to save some parameters such as the database password (if any)
