Program Type



Plant data management systems are essential for a wide range of applications including environment protection, plant resource survey, as well as for education. With the aid of advanced information technology, image processing and machine learning techniques, automatic plant identification and classification will enhance such systems with more functionalities, such as automatic labeling and flexible searching.Hence, this project is to investigate advanced image processing and machine learning techniques to represent visual information of plants, such as flowers and leaves, and to promote the utilization of invaluable knowledge accumulated by experienced botanists. Outcomes of this project can also be applied to other visual databases such as geography databases.
