What is PlantNet?

PlantNet is a plant identification app with over one million images into projects which covers plants from around the globe. It claims to have over 20,000 species in its database which grows every time a new identification is made. 

Like all plant identification apps, the position and quality of the photo are critical. Once the app identifies a plant, it shows other similar plants so the user can confirm their choice, thus adding to the database. If you upload a picture you’ve taken of a plant, PlantNet will recognise it and provide you instantly with more information about it. This app has information about more than 6000 kinds of plants and keeps adding more every day. You can even help by sharing your own pictures and information with PlantNet.
