Turn your smartphone into a tool to identify plants with PlantNet. This Android app developed by members of scientific institutions such as CIRAR, INRIA, IRD, INRA and the Tela Botanica network, makes use of your device's camera to compare images of the plants documented in its database.

One photo to identify a plant

Plants are identified automatically if they've got enough references in the database. The latter allows contributions from any user that wants to help out with new plants provided that they're registered correctly.

An application for botanics lovers.

How does PlantNet work?

To know what plant you're looking at, use your phone's camera and follow these instructions:

  • Take a photo of the organ on its own and on even backgrounds.
  • Apply to wild plants.
  • Geotag the plant.

It also comes along with a field for your own observations, as well as the possibility to view contributions from the rest of users

Requirements and additional information:

  • Minimum operating system requirements: Android 5.0.
