ISS DotCode Symbology Specification
Revision July 2012
AIM Technical Symbology Committee (TSC)
This specification defines the requirements for the symbology known as DotCode. It specifies the DotCode symbology characteristics including data character encodation, rules for error control encoding, the graphical symbol structure, symbol dimensions and print quality requirements, a reference decoding algorithm, and user-selectable application parameters.
DotCode is a rectangular matrix symbology designed to produce machine-readable coding with existing high-speed industrial printing equipment. DotCode is ideally suited for high-speed industrial ink jet and laser marking because it does not require continuous lines or touching elements.
The DotCode Encoder Software is listed as a separate product and can be purchased from the AIM Store.
