PlantNet Plant Identification
Pl@ntNet is an application that allows you to identify plants simply by photographing them with your smartphone. Very useful when you don't have a botanist on hand! Pl@ntNet is also a great citizen science project: all the plants you photograph are collected and analysed by scientists around the world to better understand the evolution of plant biodiversity and to better preserve it. Pl@ntNet allows you to identify and better understand all kinds of plants living in nature: flowering plants, trees, grasses, conifers, ferns, vines, wild salads or cacti. Pl@ntNet can also identify a large number of cultivated plants (in parks and gardens) but this is not its primary purpose. We especially need Pl@ntNet’s users to inventory the wild plants, those that you can observe in nature of course but also those that grow on the sidewalks of our cities or in the middle of your vegetable garden!The more visual information you give to Pl@ntNet about the plant you are observing, the more accurate the identification will be. There are indeed many plants that look alike from afar and it is sometimes small details that distinguish two species of the same genus. Flowers, fruits and leaves are the most characteristic organs of a species and it is them that should be photographed first. But any other detail can be useful, such as thorns, buds or hair on the stem. A photograph of the whole plant (or the tree if it is one!) is also very useful information,

Customer feedback about our service
I gave 2 stars because of the well disgned UI. Out of the 4 plants (2 trees and 2 vines) I've tried to identify, it did not get any of them correct. After taking several photos of different leaves in different light and pictures of the bark it still was not able to identify correctly. It also takes a while to upload and get a result on wifi or 5g. It seems to pause if you lock your phone or run the app in the background, so you can't use your phone for anything else while the app works.

Been using this app for at least a year and all of a sudden it doesn't want to work anymore. Phone and app are all updated. Keeps giving me "technical difficulty" pop-ups and I can't even access plants/photos I've already identified, let alone ID new ones. Was a fine app and I liked the direct link to the plant's wiki but now it just doesn't work at all! :(

Very accurate and versatile. Probably as close to perfect as it is possible to be. To get more accurate results, you need to learn to use the app and make sure you try several different photos and when uncertain get both bark and leaves or fruit/flowers). Very, very impressive. The app learns and gets better the more people use it but it is already amazingly accurate.
