Add GeoPackage geospatial data format to the Input tool

As per a recent discussion (https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Discussions/Geopackages-Can-Alteryx-Open-GeoPackag...), please add the GeoPackage datatype to the Input tool.

 

For reference, the open-source project ogr2ogr has this functionality. (https://gdal.org/programs/ogr2ogr.html)

 

Thanks!

I would just add that Geopackages needs to be an input AND output options.

 

Shapefiles should be avoided for years now (file size limit, 8 caracters column names, etc...).

Most of opendata will are or will be in this format in the near future.

 

Thanks

hi @Hollingsworth, thanks for this idea - we all love open source. As soon as this meets the necessary criteria, our product team will review.
