So where is the Boothia Peninsula anyway? This map doesn't really say..

The shading is the clue. The two peninsulas with edges shaded in Red are the the Boothia and Melville Peninsulas. -- Geo Swan 03:33, 4 October 2005 (UTC)
Great - So which shaded area is which? It's not marked which one is which! Am I supposed to know already? -- Commking, 4 October 2005 (UTC)
In English, and other European languages, we read from left to right. The peninsulas are named left to right. If I was writing form an Arabic or Hebrew wikipedia I would list them in the opposite order. Do you really not find that clear enough? -- Geo Swan 13:27, 4 October 2005 (UTC)
Err, no, it is most definitely not clear. And, no, the peninsula's are not named left to right at all on this map - they are blank and unmarked. It's not implied or stated in any way either graphically on that map or the accompanying text, in English or any other language, what we are looking at. It is unclear, it is ambiguous, and so it should be fixed. (And why do we need the Nunavut Peninsula shaded on this map anyway?) -- Commking, 4 October 2005
There is a long convention where the label is in the caption, not in the image. Photographs with multiple persons are routinely labelled in the caption. And if the order of the persons, or items, in the image are not specified everyone understands the listed names are applied to the image in left to right order. I thought it would be clear in this image too. You say it isn't clear to you? Fine. I've changed it.
I don't know what you mean by the "Nunavut Peninsula". Could you please clarify? -- Geo Swan 02:03, 5 October 2005 (UTC)
Now it's clear thanks. -- Commking, 4 October 2005
