What's NEW: Flora Finder - NZ Native Plant identification app
Developed by the University of Otago Botany Department and Otago Innovation in partnership with MEA Mobile, Flora Finder is an electronic field guide to help you identify some of the most common New Zealand native plants from photographs of their leaves.
You take a photograph of a native plant’s leaf using the camera on your smartphone and Flora Finder will:
-Instantly identify the plant for you
-Give you with a description of the plant
-Provide you with beautiful images of parts of the plant
-Pinpoint and map your location (from anywhere in New Zealand) of where you’ve found your plant using our live mapping feature
-Add your photo to your own digital collection when you confirm your match.
