Quick-response, or QR, codes are two dimensional barcodes that can be read with camera phones equipped with QR code readers. These small, black and white checkered boxes instantly link the physical world to the internet. Our QR codes display everything from YouTube videos to web pages that correspond with our pamphlets and brochures about different vectors and vector-borne diseases. We have even included a QR code in each of our geocaches that link teams directly to the log entry page while they are standing at the cache! There is no need for typing or searching, our QR codes do all of the work.
To get started, search for and download a QR code reader on your camera phone based on your cell phone manufacturer and model. Once the application has been downloaded, simply scan a QR code and enjoy the quick access to mobile websites!
