Web access is supported by SPARQL query [1].

For REST APIs then there is certainly emerging practice. The Linked Data 
API [2] lends itself nicely to a REST service view over Data Cube data 
and is being used that way by several UK public sector organizations.

However, defining such an API or set of API patterns is explicitly ruled 
out of scope for the GLD working group by its charter [3] so we are not 
allowed to address it.

Understood.

Please let us know if you are satisfied with this response.
