My observations


InfoFlora offers several tools to enter and edit floristic data from personal observations, contract work or projects (for example, from regional inventories, field surveys, from projects such as the Red List, etc.).

The Online Fieldbook is the standard tool of InfoFlora to report observations. In addition, InfoFlora also provides the neophyte field book, specifically devoted to invasive neophytes.

FlorApp is a smartphone application that facilitates the input of observations in the field and transmits the data to the online field book. 

InvasivApp is a smartphone application that allows you to quickly and easily report neophytes in Switzerland.

For data reporting in a professional context (cunsulting offices and conservation departments) please refer to the leaflet about out data reporting tools.

Other possibilities for reporting observations are available (Excel table, Access, csv, shp, etc.)

Query mode (without login)
Data on invasive neophytes are publicly accessible.
The BILANZ of a point includes a summary of all records associated to that point.
The FILTER allows you to select one or more species of your choice.

Data input mode (with login)
The FORM can be used to enter new observations, success checks and measures taken, as well. 
Under BEOBACHTUNGEN you can consult and modify your own data.

It has never been so easy to capture your plant records and observations as with your smartphone. InfoFlora provides several apps for field botanists for both Android and iPhone and free of charge. In this way, observations during your excursions or field work can be recorded and saved on site and, as soon as a connection is available, be sent directly to InfoFlora. The apps also allow you to add photos. When you are back at home, your observations can then be viewed and edited in your personal account of the online fieldbook


FlorApp ist die neue App von Info Flora. Diese App erlaubt Ihnen auszuwählen, in welchem Projekt Sie Ihre Daten abspeichern möchten. Ausserdem können Sie die Koordinaten Ihrer Fundmeldungen neu (alternativ zur automatischen Erfassung mit dem GPS) auch von Hand mit Hilfe von Luftbildern platzieren. Seit Juli 2016 können Sie mit FlorApp sogar Ihre Fundmeldungen von Moosen, Flechten und Pilzen erfassen; diese Fundmeldungen werden direkt an die für diese Organismen zuständigen Schweizer Datenzentren weitergeleitet.
