About this app

🌱-There are definitely "creatures" there too-🌱

The creature collection app Biome is not only equipped with the latest creature name recognition AI, but also has various functions related to creatures such as "picture book", "map", "SNS", and "quest"!

Why not get in touch with nature by taking photos of insects, flowers, and other living things with Biome?

The names of flowers and plants you find on your travels,
The ecology of insects and birds found during walks,
I'm sure Biome can solve your problem.

Please use Biome to pay attention to the living things around you that you have been casually overlooking until now.
I'm sure the real world will become as interesting as a game.

Let's take a look at the world of living creatures👀
From everyday life such as shopping, commuting to and from school, to leisure activities such as hiking, mountain climbing, fishing, and bird watching. It will add a little more fun to various situations when you go out of the house!
Why not fully experience the world of "real" creatures living in nature through this app?

Now, let's go outside with Biome in hand❗

About photographing bird nests and chicks
For some birds, if humans approach while raising their young, the parents may leave the nest and abandon it. Even if they do not abandon the nest and return to the nest, it is not uncommon for the eggs and chicks to cool down and die after being away for a while. Therefore, actions such as approaching the nest, staying near the nest for a long time, peering in from above, or using a camera flash can cause stress to the parent birds, which may result in them abandoning their young.
Also, please be extremely careful and considerate when observing birds that breed closer to people than usual (e.g. swallows), such as not getting too close to their nests and keeping observations for short periods of time. .
Please pay close attention to these points and watch over the bird family. Thank you for your cooperation.

Other requests
When observing or photographing living things outdoors, please be sure to protect the habitat of the living things. Let's take actions to coexist with living creatures, such as not making noise, not catching them, not getting too close, and not using flashlights.

📌Pasha the creatures! Just say the name! Illustrated book of creatures that you can understand their names!
Select a photo with GPS information from the camera icon at the bottom center of the screen, or try taking photos of living creatures with a GPS-enabled camera!
Based on the location, time, and shape of the creatures in the photo, Biome's creature name recognition AI analyzes data on almost all the plants and animals in Japan (approximately 100,000 species; as of July 1, 2022). Instantly displays species candidates with high probability.
Even if it's difficult to choose from among the candidates, don't worry! Let's make a "Shitsumon Post" and ask other users for their names!

The "Map" displays photos of creatures discovered in each location (*), so you can enjoy knowing that "such creatures exist in this place!" and experience the excitement of wanting to go outside. I can.
