Student id: 260440232 Tardif, Antoine Monday evening section, march 14 th , 2011 This paper is to explain to the reader what two-dimensional bar codes is in simple terms and also to state some of the benefits, impacts and issues that are related to it. As there are many variations according to experts as to what is the actual true definition, I will state a simple definition of what double dimensional or also called 2-D bar codes are. “ Two-dimensional bar codes are a higher level of bar codes having the capability to store substantial amounts of data that can be stored in two dimensions without becoming wider in size.” [Neil T Jones, June 25th, 2009] Two-dimensional bar codes are a big upgrade from one-dimensional ones. 2D bar codes are an improvement and work more as portable databases, which reveal loads of information each time the bar code is scanned” [Neil T Jones, June 25th, 2009] . Double-dimension bar codes are a type of bar codes where data are encoded in both the height and width of the symbol. They can be 2D matrix or stacked symbologies. Those 2D barcodes, where 2D stands for two dimensions are a type of barcodes that use rectangles, dots, hexagons, and other geometric patterns. One of the main use of barcodes is to automate supermarket checkout systems. Along those lines, there are a couple capabilities that this type of bar codes has that differentiate them from the single dimensional ones. First, as we talked above, the double dimensional bar codes use geometric forms in their patent as opposed to simple lines in the 1D ones.
