Description

Calflora Observer is an app that allows you to quickly and efficiently report wild plant occurrences. This app makes it easy for you to report the species name, date, and location of over 10,000 California native and non-native plant taxa. You can also add a photograph to a report, and share it with others later to confirm identification. Your reports are transmitted wirelessly to your account in the Calflora database, where you can edit them with the My Observations app, and see them on a map.

What's New in Version 1.2.1

* A minor update to improve searching for common and scientific plant names

Neat Citizen Science Project

I am a bit of a sucker for citizen science projects, this is one of the better ones I have found. It makes hiking in California into a bit of a treasure hunt where you try to find plants you know how to identify.

On the negative side, this is not a project I can hand to my nine year old daughter. This one takes an obsessive amount of attention to detail. There are thousands of plant species growing in California. I am pretty good, but I doubt I can identify 200. Unfortunately, this app does not help much in making identifications just reporting them.

It does make reporting plants the second time really simple. The first time is a bit clunky because you need to search for the plants scientific name. Figuring out the interface the first time is a bit complicated too, figuring out how to record notes and take pictures wasn't that obvious. It isn't hard though so once you submit three or four plants you can do it in just a few seconds.

Also, it oddly doesn't let you publish directly from the app. You need to go online and hit one more button on the Calflora site to actually publish.
