I am a total beginner and d´like to start with building up an spatialite database.
When I download the spatialite-gui folder, I can`t find an exe-file to start the programm.
Has someone an idea where the problem is?

Hi Andreas,

you are simply looking in the wrong place.
you've downloaded the source code, but you are searching instead
a precompiled binary executable for MS Windows (EXE).

you can download all prebuilt binaries for Windows from here:


please look at the light orange panel on bottom left.

bye Sandro

I think Andi was trying to find an exe for this gui tool: https://www.gaia-gis.it/fossil/spatialite_gui/index

This folder has a spatialite.exe console app but not a gui/visualization tool to draw things on a map: http://www.gaia-gis.it/gaia-sins/windows-bin-x86/

The links in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ib3ocbDZdE (Spatialite GUI - SQLite - Download and Run Spatialite Graphical User Interface Software - Part I) don't exist anymore.

Maybe Andi is looking for a tool like https://www.qgis.org/en/site/ and trying to learn how to show a basic map then do calculations in Spatialite and draw the output (WKT elements??) as a layer on the map.

I'm new to Spatialite and GIS, just wanted to help translate because I'm a beginning too. I'm currently doing calculations in spatialite.exe and using this site to visualize the results: https://clydedacruz.github.io/openstreetmap-wkt-playground/
