You can also get it by selecting from the map. In case you don't know, after 
zooming in, turn on the data layer/overlay (available from the top right hand 
side expanding menu), then in the "frame" on the left, refine your area (can be 
drawn). When you have your bounding right, you'll see a hyperlink to "API" at 
the bottom of all the object names. It should give you the same XML output you 
get from the API.

Hope that's what you were after.
