QR Codes added to UKHO's Standard Nautical Charts

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.

QR codes are getting into politics by engaging voters

It is far from rare, nowadays, to see QR codes here and there, including on poster and billboard ads, as well as on bus stops and on food packaging, but now they are being used in an entirely new way for the European Elections this year. A South East standing party in the 2014 elections will have the barcodes added to the ballot paper. This is the first time that QR codes have made it onto the country’s ballot papers. This is because the YOURvoice party has managed to incorporate the barcodes into their official logo. This has never happened before in the U.K., according to the Electoral Commission. It was chosen by the party to be able to give voters the ability to scan using their own smartphones and a free reader app. Source: QR codes are getting into politics by engaging voters - QR Code Press | QR Code Press Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source.
