If you have ever passed near a flower or plant and have been captivated by its aroma and with the uncertainty of what its name was, worry no more. At FCINCO we leave you four free applications that will reveal your data instantly. Like the Shazam app to find out song titles or Vivino, to identify a wine by photographing its label, there are others that identify vegetations.
Pl @ ntNet
Pl @ ntNet is an application to identify all types of plants in a very simple and fast way, since it allows you to enter up to 4 photographs. You just have to upload an image, and select if it is a flower, a tree, a leaf, or a fruit. As it has a database with more than 4,000 species, it shows you which one matches the most, in addition to the name, its family and the geographical area to which it belongs.
If you are a discoverer, you can also register your plant for others to contribute. It is available for iOS and Android devices and in Spanish, English and French.
This has been created by the CSIC in collaboration with the Royal Botanical Garden, and includes 118 species of wild trees from the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands.

In addition to identifying tree species, with this app you can learn both scientific information and curiosities and legends.
ArbolApp is available in English and Spanish and works autonomously without an Internet connection so that you can get lost in the woods and learn while playing Sherlock Holmes.
