Automated access to NED's Web services using computer programs and scripts is supported. Specific sample query URLs, which can be accessed via utilities such as wget and curl or from programs written in Perl, Python or Java, can be found in NED for a New Era (Mazzarella et al. 2007). However, NED's ability to support automated access involving large data volumes or high query rates is limited. Please adhere to the NED Guidelines for Automated Queries.
