Pricing and access
Price is different for each use-case (it depends on the amount of identification and the requested performace), but the base price is 5 eurocents per request. We’d recommend you to start with a free trial.
You can request your access key here for a free trial account (we’ll get back to you in a few hours).
API Reference overview
The API is documented on plantid.docs.apiary.io; and there are three endpoints
- api.plant.id/identify – sends plant photos to our backend, queue the request and returns it’s id for furher reference
- api.plant.id/check-identifications – checks by id is identification has been proceed and eventually (in a few seconds) returns the name of the plant together with other useful info
- api.plant.id/confirm-suggestion – allows a client to confirm our suggestions (this gives us feedback)
- api.plant.id/usage_info – returns statistics about API limits and usage (how many prepaid identifications left)
Example code in Python
Naive implementation is available on Github.
All requests require an access key (referred as key in the docs), check pricing section above to get it.
API for (human) expert based identification
We offer also (different) API for identifications made by human experts. Basically this is the access to FlowerChecker’s backend. The identification takes up to 24 hours and the price is 0.6 USD per request. If you are interested, ping us on email@example.com
