The Notae Elegantissimae system is essentially a shorthand that allows one to express 4 digit numbers in a very short time. The system is therefore often used in Emergency circumstances.
The Notae Elegantissimae system uses a vertical straight line as its main symbol. This symbol is essentially an axis that divides the 2 dimensional plane into 4 quadrants. Each of these 4 quadrants signifies one digit (out of the 4). The number can then be determined by visual inspection.

- This system allows one to write down numbers very fast.
