Abstract: Two-dimensional convolutional codes are considered, with codewords having compact support indexed in $\mathbb N$2 and taking values in $\mathbb F$n, where $\mathbb F$ is a finite field. Input-state-output representations of these codes are introduced and several aspects of such representations are discussed. Constructive procedures of such codes with a designed distance are also presented.
