nmtoken has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/sdw:

== Spatial Data on the Web Best Practices Example 2 has wrong coordinate axes ==
In EXAMPLE 2: Eddystone Lighthouse geometry (encoded as GeoJSON [RFC7946]) the document has:

    ...
      {
      “geometry”: {
        “type”: “Point”,
        “coordinates”: [50.184, -4.268]
      }
    }
   ....

which is incorrect.  GeoJSON RFC7946 has [Coordinate Reference System](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7946#page-12) of **urn:ogc:def:crs:OGC::CRS84** which expresses coordinates in longitude/latitude order

So the coordinates should be `[-4.268,50.184]` just off the South coast of the the UK.
