Examples

-- Feeding an empty point in GeoJSON format into the h3_polyfillash3 function (as opposed to a polygon or multipolygon).
> SELECT h3_polyfillash3('{"type":"Point","coordinates":[]}', 2)
  [GEOJSON_PARSE_ERROR] Error parsing GeoJSON: Invalid or unsupported type '"Point"' at position 9

-- Feeding an polygon with invalid GeoJSON (missing closing } at the end)
> SELECT H3_PolyfillAsH3('{"type":"Polygon","coordinates":[[[-122.4194,37.7749],[-118.2437,34.0522],[-74.0060,40.7128],[-122.4194,37.7749]]]', 2)
