Nonlinear Geometry Types Extension

This extension allows the use of extended geometry types.


Add a row to this table for each geometry type in use

Column Value
table_name table containing extended geometry
column_name column containing extended geometry
extension_name gpkg_geom_<gname> where <gname> is the uppercase name of the extended geometry type
scope read-write

Features tables

When using this extension, use the appropriate type code in the geometry type byte of the geometry. The X bit is 0 (an X bit of 1 only applies when using the now-deprecated User Defined Geometry Types Extension of GeoPackageBinary Geometry Encoding).
