Leafsnap: An Electronic Field Guide

Leafsnap is the first in a series of electronic field guides being developed by researchers from Columbia University, the University of Maryland, and the Smithsonian Institution. 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 the Northeast and will soon grow to include the trees of the entire continental United States.

This website shows the tree species included in Leafsnap, the collections of its users, and the team of research volunteers working to produce it.

      Using Leafsnap a Digital Field Guide



       

      Students in the horticultural program have been using the digital field guide Leafsnap, complete with visual recognition software, to help identify leaves, flowers, and trees on school grounds and the nature reserve that surrounds the school campus.  Students become producers of digital content by adding to the biodiversity database that is part of this free mobile app developed by researchers at Columbia University, University of Maryland, and the Smithsonian. Students will demonstrate how to use Leafsnap and share pictures from their walks.
