There are many different barcode formats available each with its own common use cases, pros and cons.
2D barcodes are used to store more data than 1d barcodes; often times a url.
1D barcodes are often used for very specific purposes (UPC codes, shipping tracking numbers..) and usually just store a text identifier.
