A new community about nature and wildlife observations
You can browse others' nature photos and interact with them by leaving a quick comment, asking a question, or like the photo by giving a heart.
Like yourself, other nature enthusiasts contribute their discoveries and knowledge in the App. Start spotting and discover new things in your environment - with NatureSpots exploring wildlife and natural habitats is something you can start right away.
Share your photos of animals, plants and mushrooms.
You can share photos of animals, plants and mushrooms with the community and enter habitats on the map. Participation is easy: take or select a photo and input your classification. If you do not know the species' name, you can mark that and others in the App can help you with the identification. The NatureSpots App is based on crowd intelligence, and together we all can learn more.
Non-commercial and independent
You can freely set up your user profile as you like and register with a minimum amount of personal data processed. There is no commercial interest behind NatureSpots, we respect your digital privacy, and we do not include trackers in the App. NatureSpots is built by the team behind the Citizen Science platform SPOTTERON. Having a modern, independent, and community-driven App can help engage more people in protecting nature and biodiversity.
NatureSpots is not just a photo app for nature exploration - together, we are also creating a nature inventory. Your entries help to document biodiversity and to understand the threat to wildlife and ecology better. All entries are published anonymously as open data and can be freely used by nature conservation organisations, local initiatives and scientists.
All observations in the NatureSpots App are available as Open Data under the Open Database License ODbL 1.0 for free use. On the online map of project's at www.naturespots.net/map, you can download the anonymised data-set by yourself to do your research or analysis, either in your region or as a total.
