In June of 1974, the first barcode appeared on a pack of Wrigley Company chewing gum. Today, barcodes can be found on almost every item for purchase within a store as well as on inventory waiting to be shipped out. Businesses as massive as Wal-Mart and Amazon use barcode and scanners; so do small-town and home businesses that need to keep track of where they’re sending their e-commerce orders. There are two types of barcodes – linear and 2D. The most visually recognizable, the UPC (Universal Product Code), is a linear barcode made up of two parts: the barcode and the 12-digit UPC number. The first six numbers of the barcode is the manufacturer’s identification number. The next five digits represent the item’s number. The last number is called a check digit which enables the scanner to determine if the barcode was scanned correctly or not. A linear barcode typically holds any type of text information. In contrast, a 2D barcode is more complex and can include more information in the code: price, quantity, web address or image. A linear barcode scanner can’t read a 2D barcode; requiring the use of an image scanner for reading the information embedded in a 2D barcode. Popular QR codes are a 2D barcode that can store a large amount of information compared to a 1D barcode.
