Pl@ntNet is a human network based on an IT infrastructure enabling identification, aggregation and sharing of botanical records at a massive scale. This project has allowed to develop a computational infrastructure able to propose among others, a mobile plant identification service based on automated image analysis. It was initially adapted for a fraction of the European flora, but is now extended to other tropical regions such as Indian Ocean flora, French Guyana flora, and North African flora.
