Two-Dimensional Barcodes Overview
The matrix barcode is a two-dimensional (2D) way for representing information.
It can also be referred to as a 2D barcode or simply a 2D code. 2D barcodes are similar to the linear (1D) barcodes, but can represent more data per unit area.
Currently, the Barcode report item supports the following matrix barcode types:
|QR Code||One of the most popular 2D barcodes with wide commercial application.|
|Swiss QR Code||A barcode based on the QR symbology used exclusively in Switzerland payment slips, named QR-bill.|
|PDF417||A stacked linear 2D barcode used by U.S. Postal Services, Department of Homeland Security, airline industry and others.|
|Data Matrix||A 2D barcode mostly used to mark smaller areas due to its high data density. Recommended by the US Electronic Industries Alliance.|
