The Plant Identification Google Map

MyPlantid

Do you have a flower growing in your garden that you just can't identify? Or maybe you have gone for a walk and seen a plant which you would really likely to know the name of. If so then MyPlantId is the website for you.

MyPlantId is a plant identification website for gardeners and botanists. Registered users of the site can take photographs of their plants and add them to an interactive Google Map. After photos are uploaded, the community of users helps identify the unknown plants, weeds or wildflowers.

MyPlantId is the only plant identification website that uses Google Maps. Since many plants tend to grow around similar plants, building a database around Google Maps helps the community in the identification process.
