I think the main reason why Britishers are credited with being responsible for modern mapping technology is because of the work of Roger Tomlinson. Roger Tomlinson was born in the United Kingdom and became a respected geographer.

He was primarily responsible for combining large data with geography and became known as the father of Geographic Information Systems, or GIS. GIS is the primary tool for modern mapping technology today.
