This is a fairly simple question: what is the best way to run a binary (yes/no) query to let me know if a point/polygon/line falls within an area. The use case is this: I have a parcel and want to return whether it falls within like five zones. I'm looking for a python solution if possible, as this will be iframed into a pop-up result in a custom Web App.
All I need is a 'yes' or 'no' result from the queries. Please help!
