|*||MOBILE PHONE TAGS: |
Small two-dimensional barcodes printed on signs are a good way for mobile phone users to quickly access more information than can fit on a small sign. The pages can be readily updated or corrected. Bayside City Council already uses such tags in some of its parks, e.g. Cheltenham Park and Donald MacDonald Reserve, Beaumaris.
