The 'Seek' App Can Match Animal Photos to Specific Species

If you're one of those outdoorsy people who's always curious about the different species of flora and fauna that you encounter while you're out and about, you might just have the perfect smartphone solution in the form of a nature app called Seek.

This app uses image recognition technology and algorithms to enable you to turn your Instagram photos into objects of study. Once you take a photo of an animal, plant or bird, you can simply upload it into the Seek app, which then tries to match your photo with the correct species. What's more, the app also gives you charts and tools to help you track down animals and plants in your area.

By providing you with the information you need to understand your discoveries, the Seek nature app aims to foster a sense of wonder for the natural world.
