CEO, Strömming AB

Plant.id is a good and simple API for plant detection. The documentation supported me during the whole process of programming and provided a simple script in different programming-languages. In this way I had a very fast start working with Plant.id. The support-team is very helpful and kind. Plant.id is very interested in supporting educational projects

Fabio, student

Although a human expert always has the final word in FlowerChecker, suggestions by Plant.id speeds up the identification process and makes it more accurate. Plant.id is especially valuable for alerting botanists about potential confusion with a similar-looking plant.
