Developing a tool for Swiss Citizen Scientists to automatically identify plant species in the field


In the related COMECO project, we are developing a deep-learning algorithm that is capable of accurately identifying Swiss plant species from images and coordinates. Here, in close collaboration with Info Flora, we aim to make this capacity freely available to amateur and professional botanists by developing a web platform and an identification module in the popular FlorApp. Moreover, we will generate a public API that allows any interested mobile phone developer to easily and freely integrate the identification service into their own apps, as long as the number of requests per time is kept at a reasonable level. These developments will support users in the field and Info Flora in the quality control of their database.
