Hi, GIS ignorant here, so I may not be using the correct terms (but hoping to change that). 


I have a lat/long point that I geocoded using the REST API. How do I check to see if this point exists within the boundary of a map layer using the REST API?


For example, I would like to check if any point x, y is located on this map of a Town's jurisdictional limits: CorporateData/JurisdictionalLimits (MapServer) 


Could I use a query? If so, what would I query? I simply need a true/false for whether it exists within the boundaries of the map.
