PlantNet is an application for botanical lovers who want to expand their knowledge. It identifies all the plant species you might encounter during a walk or a walk in the forest.
PlantNet is an application for botanists and plant lovers who would like to identify plants simply by photographing them with their smartphone. The user takes a picture of the plant you want to recognize and the app looks for plants that connect visually as closely as possible.
Developed by four French scientists, the app lists and recognizes more than six thousand species from Western Europe. Users can also add information and images of new plants, so the application continues to grow. It has a photo quality assessment feature. This allows designers to constantly improve the quality of their database. Only photos that receive on average at least 3 stars from other users can be added to the identification system. The app works best when you take a picture of a plant or flower with as few plants as possible in the background.
PlantNet contributes to the international knowledge of plants and their distribution. The platform continuously collects field data. PlantNet can be downloaded via Google Play or the App Store. It's compatible with your Android and iOS devices. The app has been installed about half to a million times.
