A computer science researcher at Edith Cowan University (ECU) has developed a unique software that can automatically identify plants from a single digital photo of the leaf.
PlantNet is an app that will help you identify a plant just by taking a picture of it — think of it as the Shazam for plants!
The users of PlantNet regularly collect field data and then share their findings, which help to identify and add information about the quality of images and the plants’ nuanced patterns.
The PlantNet app is still in development. The app was created in France and currently only recognizes French flora. However, it is being developed for world-wide use!
