I'm thinking it should be possible to consume an ESRI Geoprocessing service from a python script without invoking ArcPy or needing an ESRI installation on the client machine. For example I create a geoprocessing service that takes a series of point location and returns a csv file with the values under them as a file. I would like to include this service call in a python client application that will be running on machines that don't have any ESRI installation. Couldn't you create the rest call to kick off the service and consume the result without arcpy?
Does anyone have an example of how you might do this?
