In order to build up our image database, we therefore ask for your support: simply download the Flora Capture app on your smartphone, photograph flowers and leaves and upload these images to our project server.
Picture collections are treasures of diversity
Do you already have a comprehensive species knowledge and do you collect plant pictures? Training our image identification algorithms requires a large number and variety of different images. We need images of whole plants, but we also need detailed images of flowers, leaves and all relevant plant parts. If you have a collection of plant images that have already been identified, we would appreciate it if you would make them available to us for our research.
We say "Thanks!"
Numerous botanists and interested people who practice plant identification as a hobby have sent us their private picture collections. We would like to thank them for this.
Would you like to support us and provide us pictures? Please contact us:
