Just snap a photo of a leaf and this app identifies the tree



Hunter's comment

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!

Sounds like an interesting app, nothing really helpful but for learning something new while hiking it really is cool! Is it only for trees or also small plants in the wild, which you could eat or not eat?

Keep on hunting and enjoy the day @birdbanter

This is a wonderful application. The use of AI to identify all around us. The next step will be to implement this into some type of glasses where we will know what it is just by looking at it.


It sounds like you have a project in mind. Make it happen.

I guess it's very cool. I wish this app will be available for PC/Mac and Android in the future. And I hope we'll have something like this that will cover also other countries' flora as well. useful. thanks for sharing )

Really interesting app. I always wonder the names if I see a new plant. Its using AI to define the name and it gives also enough information about that plant so this app will teach a lot to us. It can be great solution for student and also for travellers. Thanks for the hunt

I sometimes wonder the trees' name, so it is a good app when I take a walk in the nature. Nice hunt.

This is definitely going to be very helpful. Especially, we can use the app to teach our children, to learn about different trees, their use. I checked the site, unfortunately the android version, is not out yet. So will have to wait till it comes out.

Wow, this is incredible innovation and technology. with this application I can find out the type of tree. This is very important to use to find out some types of trees and this application will identify them. extraordinary
