Abstract: The Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes (MAST) supports a variety of methods for programmatic data access. We compare and contrast the three main MAST Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and discuss use cases for each, focusing particularly on how users can successfully choose the best interface for their needs. We will explore these concepts generally and with specific reference to current and future missions.
