'Find a Plant' application

You are here

The Gardens has launched an exciting new project that has been strongly supported and assisted by the Friends. The Find a Plant application (FAP) will help visitors, staff and researchers to locate specific plants growing in the Gardens. The application will show all plants that are in publicly accessible sections. The data displayed is linked to the Living Collections system. Gardens staff regularly maintain the records on which this application is based. However, this is a huge task and while staff try to keep the data current, there will be occasions when plants are no longer in the ground where expected, or they have been recently planted and the records have not caught up. The current app is intended to be only stage 1, with a possible later stage to add more information, additional ways to search and photos of the plants.

The application should be accessible on any web browser but works best on Google or Firefox. It should be accessible on mobiles, tablets/iPads and laptops/desk computers. It can be accessed remotely from the Gardens as long as Wi-Fi is available. 

To find the app go to https://www.anbg.gov.au/fap  There will also  be information on the Gardens and website about the application and guidance should be available at the Gardens Visitor Centre.

This project has been developed with funding and other support from the Friends of ANBG. Acknowledgments for a lot of hard work are due to ANBG staff and volunteers. Many Friends have provided feedback during the design and development phase.

Members are encouraged to try the app and provide feedback to Anne Fuchs (Anne.Fuchs@environment.gov.au). This will greatly help iron out any imperfections and help open the way to a possible next phase.
