ISO/IEC 16023:2000- ISS- MaxiCode
This specification defines the requirements for the
symbology known as MaxiCode. It specifies the MaxiCode symbology
characteristics, data character encodation, symbol formats, dimensions and
print quality requirements, error correction rules, decoding algorithm, and
user-selectable application parameters.
MaxiCode is a two-dimensional matrix symbology containing a
fixed number of dark and light hexagonal modules. The symbol is specified to be
a fixed size. MaxiCode has a bulls eye finder pattern in the center of the
symbol. A two-dimensional device such as a CCD camera is necessary to scan the
symbology. MaxiCode is designed with two selectable levels of error correction
capability. It supports industry standard escape sequences to define
international code pages and special encodation schemes. MaxiCode is used to
encode address and customer specified data on shipping packages which are
scanned on high-speed conveyors.
