PlantNet Participation at LifeCLEF2014 Plant Identification Task

Abstract : This paper describes the participation of Inria within the Pl@ntNet project7 at the LifeCLEF2014 plant identication task. The aim of the task was to produce a list of relevant species for each plant observation in a test dataset according to a training dataset. Each plant observation contains several annotated pictures with organ/view tags: Flower, Leaf, Fruit, Stem, Branch, Entire, Scan (exclusively of leaf). Our system treated independently each category of organ/view and then a late hierarchical fusion is used in order to combine the results on visual content analysis from the most local level analysis in pictures to the highest level related to a plant observation. For the photographs of flowers, leaves, fruits, stems, branches and entire views of plants, a large scale matching approach of local features extracted using different spatial constraints is used. For scans, the method combines the large scale matching approach with shape descriptors and geometric parameters on shape boundary. Then, several fusion methods are experimented through the four submitted runs in order to combine hierarchically the local responses to the final response at the plant observation level. The four submitted runs obtained good results and got the 4th to the 7th place over 27 submitted runs by 10 participating teams
