Create a folder connection in the Catalog tree and connect to the SQLite database or GeoPackage file. The file must have the extension .sqlite (or .SQLITE or .SQLite; it is not case sensitive) for ArcGIS to recognize it as an SQLite database or the file extension .gpkg (also not case sensitive) to recognize it as a GeoPackage.
Follow these steps to connect to an SQLite database or GeoPackage file:
- Start ArcCatalog or ArcMap and open the Catalog window.
- Click Connect To Folder .
- Browse to the folder that contains the SQLite database or GeoPackage file and click OK.
The folder path is added to Folder Connections in the Catalog tree.
- Expand the folder and double-click the SQLite database or GeoPackage file to connect to it.
Register with ArcGIS Server
To publish web services that reference the data in an SQLite database or GeoPackage file, place the file in a folder that your ArcGIS Server site can access, and register the folder with the site. See Register your data with ArcGIS Server using Server Manager for instructions.
