The map as gospel

The North Queensland Register has a short story
about one rancher’s efforts to change a vegetation map. It seems that some of his land was classed as “untouched” forest when, in fact, it was regrowth. “A colour gets incorrectly slapped on a map and it's gospel - then it's hell to get it changed.” The designation was finally changed after a two year battle.
