Key Points about JWST Data Products

JWST data products are more complex and elaborate compared with prior-generation mission products hosted by MAST. This is in part due to the highly multiplexed science instruments on JWST (i.e., each has many configurations and operating modes), and to the much greater degree to which contemporaneous exposures are combined to form science products. This chapter summarizes the types of available data and their context, the representation of the products in the MAST Portal, and provides links to the comprehensive and authoritative documentation on JWST data products (JDox) and calibration processing (CAL).

For a potential user of JWST data, there are a few key points to keep in mind.
