Awkward 2D Array representation


I have always had the understanding that in 2d arrays
representation is
is 0,1 -> 0th row and 1 column

But in few questions i have seen that here its the opposite . Can someone explain why this is the case?
For example i was doing code-of-kutulu -> and i saw the map is represented as
Column, row.

This gets so much annoying sometimes, so i wanted to know if this is intentional and maybe i am missing something.
