Functional Description: ThePlantGame is a participatory game whose purpose is the production of big taxonomic data to improve our knowledge of biodiversity. One major contribution is the active training of the users based on innovative sub-task creation and assignment processes that are adaptive to the increasing skills of the user. Thousands of players are registered and produce on average about tens new validated plant observations per day. The accuracy of the produced taxonnomic tags is very high (about 95%), which is quite impressive considering the fact that a majority of users are beginners when they start playing.
