This function loads the SAFE gazetteer, stored as a geojson file in the

The GIS data uses the WGS84 (EPSG:4326) geographic coordinate system.
The gazetteer contains the following fields:
The official gazetteer name for a sampling site.
A short description of location type - typically the project that created the location
Where applicable, the size of the plot at a location. Note that point locations may define a sampling area with a plot size.
One of the four major large scale sampling areas: SAFE, Maliau, Danum and VJR
Only defined for the SAFE core sampling points, which follow a fractal layout.
Again, for SAFE core sampling points, the location of a point along the sampling design transect.
The centroid of the feature
The original source GIS file that the feature was described in.
The bounding box of the feature.
The GIS geometry for the data - a column of class
When this function is first called in a session, the loaded
sf object is cached for re-use (see
