PlantNet Plant Identification


[email protected] is an application for collecting, annotating and searching images to facilitate plant identification.

It was developed by a consortium that brings together scientists from CIRAD, INRA, INRIA, IRD and the Tela Botanica network as part of a project funded by the Agropolis Foundation.

It includes a support system for the automatic identification of plants from photos compared with images from a botanical database. The results are used to find the botanical name of a plant, if it is sufficiently illustrated in the base.

The number of species included and the number of images used evolve with the contributions to the project.

The application does not allow the identification of ornamental or horticultural plants. It works all the better as the photos presented are focused on a specific organ or part of a plant. Images of tree leaves on an even background will provide the most relevant results.

If you correctly identify a researched species, you can participate in this project by submitting your observation with the "contribution" button. These contributions will be subject to a moderation process and validated collaboratively.


Available for both iOS and Andorid
