comment Check if lat/long point is within a set of polygons using google maps
Yes, ray casting is the way to go I think. I actually utilized that algorithm myself via a python script. My implementation can be found here: gramsky.blogspot.com/2012/12/…

comment Check if lat/long point is within shape
Given a shapefile containing many polygons I would like to know if it is possible to see if one lat/long point is contained in ANY of the polygons contained in said shapefile. I'm rather new to ERSI but I believe I would like to make such a query using their webservices. Thus, can I, with on call, see if a lat/long is contained in ANY polygon within that published shapefile? If not, what are my options, if any?

comment Check if lat/long point is within shape
So that will tell me if A polygon contains that corresponding lat/long point, but how would I find ANY polygon (within the shape file) that contains that lat/long point? Is the only solution to loop through all know polygons?

I want to know if it can be determined if a given lat/long point is within a polygon using ESRI's javascript API and if so, how?
