Plant Houston

Students involved with the project will have the opportunity to create a Houston-area plant selection app.

The app will create suggestions using new tools in data analysis and referencing an expanding dataset of species and characteristics built around native plants, water conservation, insects, and wildlife, as well as aesthetics, availability, and growing conditions. 

Initial data for the app's development will come from the non-profits, but app users will be able to upload their own photos and suggestions, which will be combined with location and recent weather to constantly improve the database and suggestion algorithms.

Contact Dan Price or Peggy Lindner for more information about how to get involved with the Plant Houston app.
