Other big peninsulas: Yucatán (in Mexico), Baja California,
Patagonia(Argentina/Chile), Iberia (Spain and Portugal), the Malay
peninsula (southern Thailand and Malaysia), and Korea.

Most of Arabia could be considered a very large peninsula as well.

Certainly these are different than the node that defines the end of a cape
or headland or point, though it can be harder to define the landward limit
of a peninsula.

I’d suggest encouraging mappers to use a node in the center of a large
peninsula, as is done for continents and seas, rather than trying to map it
as an area.
