Code:
GET /timezoneJSON?lat=21.0580&lng=110.2353


returns

Code:
 {
   "sunrise": "2019-07-17 04:06",
   "lng": 110.2353,
   "countryCode": "CN",
   "gmtOffset": 6,
   "rawOffset": 6,
   "sunset": "2019-07-17 17:23",
   "timezoneId": "Asia/Urumqi",
   "dstOffset": 6,
   "countryName": "China",
   "time": "2019-07-16 04:43",
   "lat": 21.058
 }
 


But Asia/Urumqi appears to be intended for different part of the country in northwest China per https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xinjiang_Time

Local users report that the time zone should be reported as GMT+08:00, as per https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/china/zhanjiang

Any chance some sort of error has crept in to the data here?

Thanks,
