Seek

This might be of interest to Tero as well as others with an interest in the wild outdoors.

Here in the early summer in particular the sheer variety of plants that spring out of the ground has consistently amazed me. I’ve photographed a few from time to time and looked them up on line but that is clunky and time consuming. Then I stumbled on this app - ‘seek’ on a technology show on tv and looked it up, downloaded it (it is free) and used it for the first time this morning.

Basically you point your phone camera at anything outdoors (plants mostly in my case, and it searches a huge database, identifies the plant and provides a pile of info about it.

I think it is a fantastic app. I identified half a dozen plants this morning I’ve wondered about over the years. Recommended!

Here’s a link.

As an interesting technical aside, it sent 100% accurate (close though) and uses machine learning to improve if people upload info to the website (see link).

I might recommend that to my daughter. She's got an instagram account where she posts pretty flowers/plants and she likes to identify them if she can.

Just seek. Don't seek for anything specific, and surely you'll find. I found an android tablet and an iPad in the ditch. Both work.
