Microsoft Tag

A two-dimensional barcode used for mobile tagging. Microsoft Tag is a four-color variation of Microsoft's "High-Capacity Color Barcode" (HCCB), which uses eight colored triangles to provide a capacity of approximately 3,500 alphabetic characters per square inch. The barcodes can also be read in low light and even when the image is blurred. Like other mobile tagging systems, apps are available for popular smartphones.

Triangles and Circles
The basic tag is composed of color triangles, but a custom tag using color dots allows a logo to occupy the entire background (see below). See barcode and mobile tagging.


Normal and Custom
Both of these Microsoft Tags contain the URL of the Computer Language Company (CLC). The triangle tag (top) is the regular format, but the dot version (bottom) enables the CLC company logo to occupy the entire background.

The latest CPCB report trashes HCCB's claim and says the plants needs to fix its clean- up systems immediately.
HCCB on Wednesday said, " We have informed the tribunal that we only have one ETP, which is functioning.
We will file a detailed response." HCCB has till February 9 to come clean on its entire drainage and wastewater clean- up plan of its bottling plant in western Uttar Pradesh which is already battling groundwater crisis.
" Let a notice be issued to them," the tribunal said, adding, " We further direct the firm to submit its entire drainage map/ plan, explaining how sewage as well as trade effluents flow out and move to the pond." The CPCB report, filed before the NGT on November 19, indicted HCCB after three of the four clean- up plants were found defunct.
HCCB is the bottling investments group of the USbased beverages giant with plants engaged in manufacture, package, sale and dis- water into the pond.
