>> New: Become A Tree Expert With This App!
Have you ever been on a relaxing walk through nature with somebody and just when you wanted to shine with knowledge about the trees around you, you got all confused about which is which? Don't worry that won't happen again, because as with almost all things - there is now an APP for that! The Natural History Museum has launched Leafsnap UK, which will identify the forest in front of you.
The cool thing about it, is that you can scan a leaf of the tree that has sparked your curiosity, to find out which type it is. Also, by uploading your pic, the image and its geographical location will be added to the Leafsnap database for use by scientists, researching the tree population of Britain, helping to find out which species are found where. Sounds very innovative! Find the app HERE.
