[API-users] Some geometry searches seem to not be working

Users of rgbif have been reporting problems with geometry parameter in
/occurrence route not working sometimes. It does indeed appear to work
sometimes, but other times, it appears I think to be using latitude, but
ignoring longitude. It's hard to give reproducible examples for command
line or so, but here's a query where the longitude values appear to be all
over the map, whereas latitude appear to be in the bounds.


using hasGeospatialIssue doesn't appear to help so I'm guessing there could
be user error on my part or perhaps something going on with geometry WKT

Best, Scott
