iFlora Plan aims to raise the public knowledge on plants. As software development for mobile equipments is an important part of iFlora Plan, we designed and developed iFlora beta, a software for iFlora on a mobile platform, based on the China flora database. With Android system and iOS system, iFlora beta can offer services such as basic search for plant species, wizard search, expert interaction and system customization, which makes it possible to quickly search for plant data and identify plant species. We also discussed the way for developing a flora search feature database and an image feature database, which built the bases for the general goal of iFlora Plan.

Key words: iFlora, Species identification, Database, Mobile devices
