The App

Here are a few key features of the PlantDex App — a mobile app for cataloging plant data in the field.

GPS Tagging

Each plant entry is automatically tagged with exact location coordinates. Entries then appear on the in-app map.

Ready Index of Plants

The alphabetized index of Georgia plants – complete with autofill technology – makes searching for species quicker and easier.

Photo Capability

Don't recognize a species? Take a photo from your device to save it for further analysis or to document a new discovery.


These are the documents and projects we created during the development of the PlantDEX App.


Here's how students in the University of Georgia's New Media Institute created and implemented the PlantDEX App.

  • August 2019

    The original PlantDEX capstone team began work on a web-based plant cataloging application for their client, Dr. J.P. Schmidt in the University of Georgia's Odum School of Ecology.

  • November 2019

    As the original PlantDEX team was finishing up their web-based app, PlantDEX App developer Hannah Barry began developing a mobile version of the app in her development class.

  • January 2020

    The PlantDEX App team began working to refine and implement Hannah's design, with added feedback from Dr. Schmidt and NMI professor Emuel Aldridge.

  • April 2020

    The PlantDEX App team will present the final version of the app at the NMI's first ever virtual Space SLAM!
