Aztec Code Overview
Aztec Code is a two-dimensional matrix symbology containing dark and light square data modules. It has a finder pattern of concentric square rings centered on a single dark module located in the center of the symbol. A two-dimensional imaging device such as a CCD camera is necessary to scan the symbology. Aztec Code can encode all 8-bit values (0-127 ASCII and 128-255 ISO 8859-1, Latin Alphabet No.1) and performs Reed Solomon Error Correction based on user-selectable percentages (5% to 95%). Aztec Code is used for small item marking applications using a wide variety of printing and marking technologies. Note: Aztec Code implementation in Barcode Professional products does not support encoding for FNC1, ECI nor Structured Appended Sequence. The only optional feature in Aztec Code specification that Barcode Professional supports is “Aztec Runes” which is a series of 256 small machine-readable marks compatible with Aztec Code, available for special applications.
