The PostaL Alpha Numeric Encoding Technique (PLANET) barcode is used by the United States Postal Service to identify and track pieces of mail during delivery. Each code is either 12 or 14 digits long and encodes data in half and full-height bars similar to the POSTNET symbology. The code always starts and ends with a full bar (often called a guard rail) and each individual digit is represented by a set of five bars using a two-out-of-five code where two of the bars are always short.
