Middle-Earth maps “inaccurate”

A very interesting and thought provoking article on the excellent TechnoLlama blog entitled: “Technology changes things, get over it!”  The tone and content of the article can be inferred from the title.

However, it does carry the shocking revelation / allegation that JRR Tolkein‘s maps of Middle-Earth were “often inaccurate”!  I know what he means – for example, should Rhosgobel be north or south of the Old Forest Road and where exactly is Belegost in relation to the Gulf of Lune, if it’s supposed to be at about the same latitude as Lake Nenuial?
