Development & functioning :
Pl@ntNet is a participatory platform for collecting, sharing and revising plant observations based on automated identification. The web and mobile frontends of the platform are used by a large community of several million users who produce hundreds of thousands of plant observations daily. This data stream is of high interest to many research domains including ecology, agronomy and energy.
This service will develop EOSC-compliant web services allowing researchers to get access to Pl@ntNet data, run the Pl@ntNet engine and contribute to the platform.
Example 1: A researcher studying the distribution or evolution of a particular group of plant species will be able to download the observations of that plant contributed by Pl@ntNet users.
Example 2: A citizen observatory developing a new app related to biodiversity will be able to integrate an automatic plant identification feature without managing it itself.
