I have encountered multiple problems with Island bounding boxes.
254 out of 7316 BB Don't intersect with the Island geoname lat/lon (GS4326 Calculation)
Furthermore, picking random entries that do intersect show significant shifts of the BB from the bounded island on the Geonames map interface:
3879310 Islote Morritos
1150360 Ko Ta Chai
1166351 Salehaabad Island (Invalid boundingbox)
1735616 Pulau Sampadi
3888135 Isla Héctor
6068429 Mayor Island (shows Bramham Island on the map)
Can you please share the data / heuristic source for the BB or alternatively identify the names that where hand-drawn? Maybe its spatial reference system issue ... as currently it seems pretty much a gamble to check if a Toponyms exists within bounds for ISL's.
