Can convert geo_shape to geo_point for existing index?

We have already indexed data with location geo_shape.
"location": {
"type": "geo_shape",
"points_only" : true
indexed as
"location": {
"coordinates": [
"type": "point"

  1. Will we be able to _reindex geo_shape to new mapping as geo_point ?

My requirement is to save only a point(lat, lng) and want to check whether this point fall inside a polygon.

  1. For this which datatype is the best way of implementation in terms of speed and reliability. ?
