> Dear GBIFApiers, we are excited to announce some new features that are now supported by there GBIF Portal and Occurrence API:
> Full text search is now supported. Some examples of this new function are:
> Search by collector (recorded by): 
> http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/search?q=hobern 
> http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/search?q=desmet 
> Search by locality shows accurate results for most of the cases: http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/search?q=santa%20ana 
> This service provides suggestions when a ‘similar/corrected’ version of the query could show more accurate results: http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/search?q=kajsdkla&spellCheck=true .
> This functionality is also supported by the GBIF portal: http://www.gbif.org/occurrence/search?q=cobra
> Faceted search 
> The GBIF portal now supports faceted navigation by:  basis of record, type status, data set, country,  year and month. Please, see this example: http://www.gbif.org/occurrence/search?basis_of_record=FOSSIL_SPECIMEN .
> The GBIF API supports faceted results  by: basisOfRecord, catalogNumber, classKey, collectionCode, country, datasetKey, decimalLatitude, decimalLongitude, depth, elevation, establishmentMeans, familyKey, genusKey, hasCoordinate, hasGeospatialIssue, institutionCode, issue, kingdomKey, mediaType, month, occurrenceID, orderKey, phylumKey, publishingCountry, recordedBy, recordNumber, repatriated, scientificName, speciesKey, subgenusKey, taxonKey, typeStatus and year. 
> The occurrence API supports pagination request in facets using the parameters facetLimit and facetOffset, see this example:
> First three country counts/facets: http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/search?facet=COUNTRY&COUNTRY.facetLimit=3&COUNTRY.facetOffset=0&limit=0
> Next three country counts/facets: http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/search?facet=COUNTRY&COUNTRY.facetLimit=3&COUNTRY.facetOffset=3&limit=0  
> A new repatriation filter allows to search for records whose publishing country is different to the country where the record was recorded in. For example, the following link shows the repatriated data of Costa Rica:http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/search?COUNTRY=CR&REPATRIATED=true .
> Be aware that this is still in a experimental phase and its definition could change in the future. Please refer to the API documentation http://www.gbif.org/developer/occurrence and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have further questions!
> Best regards, GBIFS Informatics.
