About this app

With Naturblick you easily identify animals and plants and learn more about the nature in your neighbourhood. Take photos of plants and identify them with our automatic image recognition. Record bird calls and identify which bird is singing with the automatic sound recognition.

Identify animals:
- Identify birds
- Identify mammals
- Identify amphibians (frogs and newts)
- Identify reptiles
- Identifying butterflies
- Identifying bees, wasps and others

Identify plants:
- Identify deciduous trees and ginkgo
- Identify herbs and wildflowers

Species descriptions
- Listening to animal voices
- Overview of important identification features
- Similar species
- Learn more about the species in the city and garden

A complete list of the bird species to be identified can be found here:

You can also save Naturblick on a memory card if necessary.

Support the further development!
As part of a research project funded by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), Naturblick is continuously being developed in terms of content and technology. Support us in this process and give us your feedback!
We thank everyone who helps us and makes suggestions for improvement. Write us an email at naturblick[at]mfn-berlin.de or give us your feedback via the feedback form on our page www.naturblick.naturkundemuseum.berlin.

Overview of data collection
All data is collected for purely scientific purposes. As soon as the data is no longer needed, we delete it. Which data is collected and to what extent may also partly result from technical necessities.
When using this app, the following data is collected and stored anonymously on the servers of the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin:
● Sound and image recording
The app uses the phone's microphone and camera. The recordings are saved anonymously and used, for example, as training material for pattern recognition. If you wish, you can enter an author name for the recordings you make. This data is also used for quality assurance of observations reported in observation networks.
● Metadata of the recordings or observations (type, coordinates, time, number, behaviour).
The app needs access to the location to record the metadata on coordinates and time. This data is used when reporting observations in observation networks and when displaying observations on the map.
● Device ID
The app needs permission to access the phone (phone status and identity) in order to read the device ID. This is sent to our server in encrypted form so that we do not have any information about the unencrypted device ID. This enables us to protect our pattern recognition service against misuse without user registration (LogIn). It also allows us to scientifically evaluate the use of the app without having to collect further data.
● Metadata of the identification results (coordinates, time, identification history)
Your anonymised identification results and the use of the identification aids developed by us are scientifically evaluated. Based on this, the app will be further developed and improved on the one hand, and the effectiveness of the tools we have developed will be examined on the other.

Data protection is very important to us. You can find more information about data protection here: https://www.museumfuernaturkunde.berlin/en/general-privacy-notice and in the imprint of Naturblick.
