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

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

Recognize plants:
- Identify deciduous trees and ginkgo
- Identify herbs and wild flowers

Species descriptions
- Listen to animal sounds
- Important identifying features in the overview
- Possible types of confusion
- Learn more about the species in the city and garden

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

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

Support 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 further developed in terms of content and technology. Support us and give us your feedback!
We thank everyone who helps us and makes suggestions for improvement. Write us an email to naturblick [at] mfn-berlin.de or give us your feedback using the feedback form on our website www.naturblick.naturkundemuseum.berlin.

Overview of data collection
All data are 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 can partly also 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 recordings
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 provide an author name for the recordings you have recorded. These data are also used to ensure the quality of observations that are reported in observation networks.
● Metadata of the recordings or observation (type, coordinates, time, number, behavior)
The app needs access to the location in order 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 authorization to access the phone (phone status and identity) in order to read the device ID. This is sent encrypted to our server so that we have no information about the unencrypted device ID. This enables us to protect our pattern recognition service against misuse without user registration (log-in). In addition, we can scientifically evaluate the use of the app without having to collect further data.
● Metadata of the determination results (coordinates, time, determination process)
Your anonymized determination results and the use of the determination aids developed by us are scientifically evaluated. Based on this, on the one hand the app will be further developed and improved and on the other hand the effectiveness of the tools we have developed will be examined.

Data protection is very important to us. You can find more information on data protection here: https://www.naturkundemuseum.berlin/de/datenschutz and in the imprint of Naturblick.
