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:

3155417 Golma
3879310 Islote Morritos
1150360 Ko Ta Chai
1166351 Salehaabad Island (Invalid boundingbox)
1735616 Pulau Sampadi
3888135 Isla H├ęctor
1861516 Io-shima
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.
