ICE Barcode Guide

28 April 2016

Recently Interactive Coding Equipment (ICE) published a barcode guide. A barcode is an optical machine readable visual pattern which contains a range of important information relevant to a specific product such as price, manufacturing origin and expiry data.
Barcodes come in many shapes and sizes; the most widely recognised type is composed of parallel lines which vary in width and is commonly referred to as linear or one dimensional (1D). More recently, these codes have evolved into rectangles, dots, hexagons and other geometric patterns in two dimensions (2D). The ICE Barcode Guide explains what a barcode is and gives an overview of the different types of barcodes, among other things.
