||PDF417 symbology can encode a vast amount of data into a small space. System supports encoding up to the ISO standard maximum symbol size of 925 codewords which (at error correction level 0) allows a maximum data size of 1850 text characters, or 2710 digits.
||The maximum size MicroPDF417 symbol can hold 250 alphanumeric characters or 366 digits.
||Developed by UPS the Maxicode symbology employs a grid of hexagons surrounding a 'bulls-eye' finder pattern. This symbology is designed for the identification of parcels. Maxicode symbols can be encoded in one of five modes. In modes 2 and 3 Maxicode symbols are consists of a structured data field which includes various data about the package being sent and the secondary message usually consists of address data in a data structure. composed of two parts named the primary and secondary messages. The primary message
||Also known as Quick Response Code this symbology was developed by Denso. The maximum capacity of a (version 40) QR Code symbol is 7089 numeric digits, 4296 alphanumeric characters or 2953 bytes of data. QR Code symbols can also be used to encode GS1 data. QR Code symbols can encode characters in the Latin-1 set and Kanji characters which are members of the Shift-JIS encoding scheme. Input should be entered as a UTF-8 stream with conversion to Shift-JIS being carried out automatically by the application. A separate symbology ID can be used to encode Health Industry Barcode (HIBC) data which adds a leading '+' character and a modulo-49 check digit to the encoded data.
||Also known as Semacode this symbology was developed in 1989 by Acuity CiMatrix in partnership with the US DoD and NASA. The symbol can encode a large amount of data in a small area. Data Matrix can encode any characters in the Latin-1 set and can also encode GS1 data.
||Invented by Andrew Longacre at Welch Allyn Inc in 1995 the Aztec Code symbol is a matrix symbol with a distinctive bulls-eye finder pattern. The application can generate Compact Aztec Code (sometimes called Small Aztec Code) as well as "full-range" Aztec Code symbols and by default will automatically select symbol type and size dependent on the length of the data to be encoded. Error correction codewords will normally be generated to fill at least 23% of the symbol. Aztec Code is able to encode any extended ASCII character data up to a maximum length of approximately 3823 numeric or 3067 alphabetic characters or 1914 bytes of data. A separate symbology ID can be used to encode Health Industry Barcode (HIBC) data which adds a leading '+' character and a modulo-49 check digit to the encoded data.

||Miniature version of the QR Code symbol for short messages. ECC levels can be selected as for QR Code (above). QR Code symbols can encode characters in the Latin 1 set and Kanji characters which are members of the Shift-JIS encoding scheme. Input should be entered as a UTF-8 stream with conversion to Shift-JIS beingcarried out automatically by system.
||A truncated version of compact Aztec Code for encoding whole integers between 0 and 255. Includes Reed-Solomon error correction.
|| Grid Matrix became an AIM standard in December 2008. The encoding allows Latin1 and Chinese characters within the GB 2312 standard set to be encoded in a checkerboard pattern. Input should be entered as a UTF-8 stream with conversion to GB 2312 being carried out automatically by system.
