Just snap a photo of a leaf and this app identifies the tree
Have you ever asked yourself or someone you were with what is the name of a tree you are looking at might be? Now you can find out on the spot. Leafsnap is a free app to identify a tree from a phone photo of its leaf. It is free after being developed by Columbia University, the University of Maryland and the Smithsonian Institute. It is currently available only for iOS. It is focused primarily on trees in the eastern United States but is expected to expand to cover the whole of the U.S. and Canada in the near future.
Be the cool, in-the-know one in your hiking or walking group, and identify a tree by simply taking a photo of a leaf. How cool is that!
