  • Publication number: 20130322631
    Abstract: A method of producing a two-dimensional code having a code area in which data codes coded as codewords are mapped. First type of data codes is mapped in the code area. The first type of data codes are coded as the codewords and indicating data to be disclosed. An end identification code is added to an end of a code string composed of the first type of data codes, the end identification code showing the end. Second type of data codes are mapped after the end identification code in the code area, the second type of data codes being coded as the codewords and indicating data to be kept in secret. Filler codes showing no data after the second type of data codes are mapped to fill up the code area, when a total amount of the codewords in the code area is less than a capacity of the code area.

  • Patent number: 8424775
    Abstract: A two-dimensional code having a rectangular region is provided. In the rectangular region, there are code blocks composed of a plurality of cells, a first specific pattern specifying the positions of the cells, and a second specific pattern separating the code blocks from a background of the code. The first specific pattern is located at a specified corner of the rectangular region. The second specific pattern is located along one or more of first borders along which the first specific pattern is located, the first borders being part of the borders of the rectangular region. The code blocks include error-correction code blocks, which are located along second borders which are different from a border of the borders along which the second specific pattern is located. The second borders are part of the borders. Compressed data code blocks are also arranged in the same way as the error-correction code blocks.
