What Are 1D / 2D Barcodes?

1D barcodes are linear codes including alphanumeric data. 2D barcodes store data through various geometric patterns such as dots, hexagons rectangles and squares – the most common 2D formats are QR, data matrix and dot codes. Besides the shapes, the main difference between 1D and 2D barcodes is that 2D models can store more information than 1D versions. The advantage of using our innovative scanners is that they allow you to read both 1D and 2D barcodes with the same scanner.
