What is GeoPackage

A GeoPackage is an open, standards-based, platform-independent, portable, self-describing, compact format for transferring geospatial information.

GeoPackage is the one type of shapefile. This shapefile is the most shared GIS format on the planet and its encoding of vector features.

GeoPackage is extensible, and there are approved OGC extensions for gridded tiles of elevation data and table relationships, and non-approved community extensions such as map styling of features and storing vector tiles.
