Each installation includes three prepaid identifications, each other for : 1 USD / 0.7 EUR. We use Google's in-app purchase.
The identification process is not computer-based, it requires human involvement. Therefore we ask for a payment to maintain quality of the service. If we can't identify your plant, you don't pay anything.
Our team will respond as quickly as possible, but the identification usually takes minutes or hours. So far, we have been able to identify 90% plants in average.
These plants are spreading quickly across the UK. They displace native species and detrimentally affect the ecology of many vulnerable habitats. Some also pose a considerable threat to human health. These plants also present a large financial cost to the UK economy with the annual cost of all invasive, non-native species totalling some £2 billion.
The first step in tackling this problem is accurately determining where these plants are. In order to do that, we need your help! Please use this app to help us to build a comprehensive picture of the UK’s invasive, non-native plant species.
You can browse plants by families, genus, search by common name or scientific name, and state. The detail species page include major characters and distribute map, and linked to USDA web site for detail information.
You can use it in a field trip, write a note about a plant, take a photo using the phone camera, select a photo from the phone. It is all at your finger tip.
You can save the plant locations and later view all of them on a map.
You can also group them, and add various species into different groups for easy access.
Note: Data are from USDA plant database (2006), with 541 families, about 5000 genea, and 50,000 species. If have other data sources, please let me know. We can make it better. I am a plant lover too!
Note: If your child is more than 1.5 or 2 years old, he will probably get bored with this pretty quickly. It is meant as an introductory game to get younger kids familiar with a touchscreen phone and vibration feedback.

Download the app now to join this fun, family-friendly citizen science project.
For more information visit www.greatbritishbeecount.co.uk
The Great British Bee Count is brought to you by Friends of the Earth, Waitrose and Buglife.
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.
To find this application on the web, go to the following link:
Those who want to contribute more interactively to this participatory science project can go to:
It contains a full list of plant, bird, mammal, reptile, amphibian, butterfly, dragonfly and moth species. Species can be found and located by searching for either common or formal latin names (using 3 or more letters).
Records can be exported into a spreadsheet for later import into Recorder or GIS software on your PC.
It includes a moving Ordnance Survey map (sourced from OpenData, downloadable for offline use) for recording species away from the current location. If you have purchased 1:25k OS 10km map tiles these can also be used after some processing (please email for instructions).
It also supports GPS track recording, and additional fields for appropriate species - eg life stage for amphibians and DAFOR for plants.
We are negotiating to obtain the complete UK flora and fauna (including bryophytes, fungi, insects etc) but this is not yet available.
Integration with iRecord is also in development.

Users can narrow the species list for any location in North America using the phone's GPS, network signal or any entered address or zip code. Basically the application can become “Woody Plants of Where You Are Standing”. For example, it can become the “Woody Plants of Southwestern Oregon” , the “Woody Plants of Central Park” or the or “The Woody Plants of 37.108 lat., -80.452 long., elevation 2118”.
Users can further narrow the species list by answering a series of very simple tree attribute questions such as where the plant is growing, leaf shape, leaf arrangement, flower color or fruit type.
The species list can also be narrowed by typing a keyword such as oak, Abies, red or palm. For example if oak is typed only oaks found in the defined area will be listed.
A feature also allows you to send any tree related question to “Dr. Dendro”, a tree expert in the Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation at Virginia Tech. You can send a tree description or pictures of your plant and experts will help with identification.
• 969 woody plants from all over North America
• Over 6,400 color photographs of leaves, flowers, fruit, twig, bark, form, and range map for each species
• In depth description of all plant parts
• Narrows species list based on your location and elevation using the phones GPS, network signal or user entered location
• Search for species by a key word, e.g. maple
• Identify species by answering a series of simple questions. A picture is displayed showing what is being asked.

Butterflies and Bees play an important role in the Web of Life. Many butterflies are closely linked to specific plants and habitats. Bees are one of the most important pollinators, and many flowering plants depend on them. By understanding the significance of Bees and Butterflies in our environment, we can enthusiastically participate in their conservation.
Butterflies and Bees App is an initiative of Earthwatch Institute India to facilitate easy identification of some of the butterflies and bees in the field using mobile application. It is hoped that this mobile application will help increase public awareness and generate greater interest regarding butterflies and bees amongst the young citizens in our country. The App will further strengthen our keenness to observe the bees and butterflies and help us as Citizen Scientist in contributing to the knowledge base.
The app displays information such as:
1. High Resolution image.
2. Common and Scientific names.
3.Key data like IUCN Status, Endemicity, Rarity, Size, Typical Habitat, Localities, Where to Look and Activity.
1. Multiple navigation like Pages, Slider and searchable grid view.
2. Pinch or Double tap to Zoom.
3. Butterflies & Bee slideshow widget!
4. Slideshow mode.
5. In-App brightness control.
6. Set any Butterfly & Bee picture as your Wallpaper.
7. Landscape book style navigation.
7. Remembers previous read page and position.
Fresh water is essential for sustaining all life while freshwater ecosystems provide fundamental benefits for people and nature. Yet this crucial resource is very limited and can be easily degraded. As the world’s population grows, ongoing urban expansion and agricultural intensification will increase the pressure on this resource.
To successfully manage the world’s fresh water, we need to improve our understanding of how water quality varies across landscapes and over time, yet surprisingly little data are available. Such information is difficult and time consuming for scientists to gather, which is where you come in. With your help we can vastly increase the amount of data to fill gaps in our knowledge across the globe.
The information that you will help collect will directly inform fresh water policy and practice, meaning that the world’s vital water resources are better understood and conserved. You will be joining a network of over 20 research projects that are being facilitated by Earthwatch with the support of the HSBC Water Programme.
Thanks for your help!
WildImage can be used either as a floor plan for museums and other interior trails or can contain flow-diagrams or images that contain clickable Designated Interest Points. These interest points contain text, images, audio, video and multi-choice questions relating to the object. Users of WildImage can also complete a dedicated recording form to upload their own data to the WK Portal.
Using the online creation tool simply load up your map and add media such as text, images, audio, video and quiz questions to your Designated Interest Points (DIPs).
Download your maps to your Android phone or tablet and use the GPS marker to guide you around your trail. WildMap can be used with a live internet connection or can be used offline. In addition to providing DIPs you can also record your own Personal Interest Points (PIPs) as you walk around the destination.
You can also upload, store and visualise your PIP information as reports, charts and maps which can be kept private, or shared with the community as open projects.
Decide where you want to go, then download the relevant walk (we recommend you do this before your visit). Once there, activate the App then use your phone’s GPS to help guide you round the route shown.
As you travel along the route select the information points as you come to them, to learn more about the site’s history and wildlife, or to participate in an activity.
