Mapsense is just the latest in an onslaught of maps and GPS-related acquisitions for Apple in recent years. In 2013, it picked up crowd-sourced mapping software Hopstop and location-based startup Locationary, and earlier this year it bought out Coherent, which was working on improved High Integrity GPS tech.
