Apple has made another acquisition in efforts to continue building up its Maps infrastructure, Re/code reports. The company this month acquired Mapsense, a startup that builds location data analysis and visualization tools, paying somewhere between $25 million and $30 million for the small twelve-person team, according to multiple sources familiar with the details. Apple provided its usual generic statement that it “buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”
