QR codes sometimes appear in unlikely places, on everyday objects rather than on advertisements or billboards. And even on weird things like on teabags, the backs of Subway employees’ T-shirts, and even on bananas. When the advertising campaign ends or a company nosedives and disappears, the QR code itself may endure on these materials.

Given the proliferation of memorialization websites and the use of social networking profiles as mourning spaces, it may come as no surprise that QR codes now appear on headstones, linking graveyard visitors to online tributes to the dead.

In an initiative to deliver the benefits of digital solutions to users of paper navigational charts, the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) has introduced Quick Response (QR) codes to its portfolio of Standard Nautical Charts. All newly printed versions of 3,371 Standard Nautical Charts and Mariners' Routing Guides, including Print-On-Demand charts, now feature a unique QR code. By scanning the QR code, the user will be taken directly to the relevant page for the scanned chart on the UKHO's searchable Notes to Mariners database, known as NM Websearch, where they will be provided with instant access on their smart phone or tablet to chart status information. This is a valuable chart management tool that will help to deliver the latest navigational safety information at the touch of a button.
