Global Symbiostock Search at symbiostock.info can be used as a source of data. Developers can use it, for example, in smartphone applications or plugins. Search results are returned as XML files, compatible with data format used by all Symbiostock sites for network communication (and thats why every Symbiostock site can display network results from symbiostock.info).

More info here:

Fantastic resource

another resource for non-programmers is the ability to create contact sheets for external links that's available at http://symbiostock-search.com

Is there any way to get 'rated' images into the API from the XML data?

Already is :)
I changed it a bit, so now there is a possibility to select  rated or unrated images.

Spotted it...

search_content=R

When I use it on symbiostock.info it doesn't seem to change the results from 'best match', they both look identical.
I was expecting a different selection of images between the two identical searches, is there a bug in the rating on the base theme?

Any thoughts AJT?

Can you give some examples?

It works for me...

This call with R selects 6182 rated images
http://symbiostock.info/?symbiostock_network_search=woman&search_order=1&search_content=R

and this

http://symbiostock.info/?symbiostock_network_search=woman&search_order=1&search_content=X

gives 10570 unrated images.

This call
http://symbiostock.info/?symbiostock_network_search=woman&search_order=1&search_content=r

selects all 16752 images.

Maybe you mean rank? It is not implemented in .info yet, I'm thinking, how to do it best :)

Yes, I mean Rank :-)

Getting the two mixed up!

Maybe have a best match v2 for testing.

Fingers crossed it will improve the search results quite dramatically.
