Hi all,
I'm getting a 500 from the ESRI server's Geometry Service when I try to send a request to calculate the area. When I use Python code (requests library) to send the data, I get a 500 "Error computing areas and lengths". When I try to do a manual POST it works. I'm not sure how to reproduce this problem though. So my question essentially is, how do you get a 500 from the Geometry Service? I'm using 10.1.
