Can someone point me to a simple example of how to convert a Polygon Feature Service to a point - retaining all attributes?
This should do it: Feature To Point—Data Management toolbox | ArcGIS Desktop
...and if you are trying to use the ArcGIS API for Python (community the thread is posted) I would start looking accessing geoprocessing tools | ArcGIS for Developers For documentation using GP tools with the API. You may need to log in with a developer account to access (you can get one for free, if you don't already have one)
Note...I have not tried this yet, but this is where I would start.
Retrieving data ...
