Leafsnap

Leafsnap
Columbia University, the University of Maryland and the Smithsonian Institution have combined their expertise to create a plant identification mobile app using visual search. This free mobile app uses visual recognition software to help identify tree species from photographs of their leaves.
Leafsnap contains beautiful high-resolution images of leaves, flowers, fruit, petiole, seeds, and bark. Leafsnap currently includes the trees of New York City and Washington, D.C., and will soon grow to include the trees of the entire continental United States.
