It is developed by scientists from four French research organisations (Cirad, INRA, Inria and IRD), and the Tela Botanica network, with the financial support of Agropolis fondation.
Among other features, this free app helps identifying plant species from photographs, through a visual recognition software. Plant species that are well enough illustrated in the botanical reference database can be easily recognized.
This app works on more than 4100 species of wild flora of the French territory, the species list is available through the application. The number of species and the number of images used by the application evolve with contributions of end users to the project.
It doesn't allow the identification of ornamental plants. It works even better than the pictures submitted are focused on one organ. Pictures of tree leaves on uniform background provide the most relevant results.
If you correctly identify a species, you can participate to the project by submitting your observation with the "contribution" button. These contributions subject to a moderation process will be validated collaboratively.

The identification process is not computer-based, it requires human involvement. Therefore each identification is paid using Google's in-app purchase. One plant identification costs 1 USD / 0.7 EUR. If we can't identify your plant, you don't pay anything.
Everybody gets one identification for free as a trial.
Our team will respond as soon as possible, but the identification usually takes minutes or hours. So far, we have been able to identify 90% plants in average.

At the same time, it is also a journey through the planet’s biomes, from tropical to sub-humid, temperate and arid zones. To show people the wealth of biodiversity preserved in every corner of the Earth, from the richest to the poorest, from the most protected to the most threatened.
In the Biodiversity Garden, with this app, a smartphone or tablet will become a tool for visitors to interact with the environment and plants. This app will be used to increase the possibilities for communicating and disseminating botanical knowledge, a natural evolution of the way we recount the Botanical Garden’s five hundred years of scientific experience.
With this approach, the visit begins even before visitors reach the Garden and continues after they leave its gates.
