Finding Aids to Official Records of the Smithsonian Institution Archives
National Museum of Natural History
Website Records, 2011-2012
This accession consists of the "Leafsnap: An Electronic Field Guide" website, crawled on July 19, 2011 and again, in three pieces, on June 5, 6, and 20, 2012. The website accompanies a downloadable mobile application of the same name which uses visual recognition software to help identify tree species from photographs of their leaves. The initial application only contains species in the northeastern United States. This website shows the tree species included in Leafsnap, the collections of its users, and the team of research volunteers working to produce it. The crawled website only includes text. Although several attempts were made, images on the website could not be captured. Materials are in electronic format.
