Long DescriptionThe medical tradition that developed in the lands of Islam during the medieval period (c. 650-1500) has, like few others, influenced the fates and fortunes of countless human beings. It is a story of contact and cultural exchange across countries and creeds, affecting many people from kings to the common crowd. This tradition formed the roots from which modern Western medicine arose. Contrary to the stereotypical picture, medieval Islamic medicine was not simply a conduit for Greek ideas, but a venue for innovation and change. Medieval Islamic Medicine is organized around five topics: the emergence of medieval Islamic medicine and its intense crosspollination with other cultures; the theoretical medical framework; the function of physicians within the larger society; medical care as seen through preserved case histories; and the role of magic and devout religious invocations in scholarly as well as everyday medicine. A concluding chapter on the "afterlife" concerns the impact of this tradition on modern European medical practices, and its continued practice today. The book includes an index of persons and their books; a timeline of developments in East and West; and a section on further reading.

Identified by the bulls-eye pattern in the center of the square, the Aztec Code barcode is easy to recognize. This symbol supports patterns ranging from 15x15 up to 151x151 blocks with one special rune that can encode a single byte. This rune is 11x11 blocks.

Barcode Aztec

The bulls-eye is either 9x9 or 13x13. The ring directly beyond the bulls-eye is the mode section. The remainder of the symbol is the data and error correction. Three of the corners of the core hold the orientation markers. In the image below we have marked the bulls-eye in red, the mode section in green and the orientation markers are in blue leaving the data area in black and white.

Barcode Aztec

The data is stored in pairs of rings that stretch out from the core. The decoding of data starts at the orientation marker made up of three blocks and procedes in a counter-clockwise direction. There is no outer marker to identify the outer boundry because the size is encoded in the core.

Because this symbology is mainly used in industry and not for public consumption, most smart phones can't read them. Try with your smart phone.

Although we don't have a generator here on our site at the moment, there is one availbale at www.racoindustries.com if you wish to create your own Aztec Code barcodes.
