Long DescriptionIf every map has a perspective, a point of view, whose interest do they serve? "The Power of Maps" re-examines the maps we have known all our lives to reconsider what and how they tell us about the places we know and the places we learn about. The pretence of objective, "scientific" map-making is demolished as the author explores how maps can change the way we see our world.

The maxicode barcode is identified by the circular bulls-eye in the center and a matrix of circular dots that make up the data. Unlike many of the other 2D barcodes, this symbology uses a hexagonal grid rather than bars or squares.

Barcode Maxicode

These symbols are always printed as a 1 inch square often found on shipping packages and can store around 93 characters. If more data is needed, up to 8 codes can be chained together and scanned one after the next. The bulls-eye helps the scanner identify the pattern even when packages are streaming by at speed.

There are several modes that these symbols can use. UPS uses mode 2 and 3 on their packages.

If you need to generate your own maxicode barcodes, you can check out the bcgen.com web site.
