Many degrees of redundancy can be built into a 2d symbol leaving it readable after many rips and scratches A 1d symbol's parallel lines can be marked through with a pen, and the code is ruined. 1,520 alphanumeric characters can be placed in a single 2d symbol the size of a large postage stamp! VS Which is significantly greater than the nearly 30 characters stored in a 1d symbol. flyer handed out at a trade show But they don't seem to mind.

With the growth of Smartphones, 2d bar codes and mobile tagging will become advertisers' best friends. A Mashable Infographic illustrates it this way: Limitations OS = Blackberry, Android and Apple Here’s how the Google Goggles pilot program worked: The advertisers produced ads with images that could be recognized by Google Goggles.
For instance, a Buick print ad could, when photographed, lead to a dedicated website, via a QR code. Michael Slinger, director of mobile ads for the Americas at Google, says he’s still analyzing the results from those campaigns, which launched in late 2010.
