Supported Barcode Types and Image Formats
Aspose.BarCode for Node.js via Java supports more than 60 barcode types used in various industries, i.e., linear (1D), matrix (2D), and postal barcodes. The detailed description about barcode generation for different types can be found in section Generation Specifics for Barcode Types.
1D barcode types relate to the first generation of one-dimensional (1D) barcode types that decode data by changing the widths of black and white parallel lines. Particular 1D standards support encoding only numbers, while others allow encoding also letters and special symbols.
2D barcode types, also referred as 2D barcode types, have been developed as an advanced way to encode data. Two-dimensional (2D) types imply creating barcodes composed of various figures and shapes. These barcode standards are deemed to have better efficiency compared with 1D barcodes owing to their improved data density and data recovery mechanisms.
Postal barcode types are special standards introduced by postal services in various countries.
