    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 web site.
