PlantNet Revised

PlantNet’s offerings have been revised. It now gives a score (a fraction, to two decimal places).

The release isn’t announced on the home page.

It says that it is reporting from North West European species, but it’s still offering North American trees, possibly because they’re in PlantNet’s database from cultivated or erroneously identified specimens.

It will be interesting to see how the updated AI performs.

It is not announced as we are still working on it to bring in some of the suggestions that the community has made. Some things may be possible and others not, it is difficult or impossible to do this testing on the test site.

Well it worked for you for the African tree, but I did notice that they had a dedicated data base of African trees.

Then I found this interesting, since I knew the name, Alphonse Lavallée

We had friends who produced export grapes on their farm in Paarl (Western Cape) and they always talked of this cultivar with pride.
Another cultivar was haanepoort which is still a favourite table grape in Cape Town. Wish we could buy them in London.

Origin : NorthAfrica, in the time of the ancient Egyptians, who used it for making wine.
