I would start with what you already know.   If you want to build a native app then you will use the IOS SDK and Objective-C and javascript.    http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/Miscellaneous/Conceptual/iPhoneOSTechOverview/IPhoneOSOverview/IPhoneOSOverview.html

If you don't feel comfortable with that, you can create a web app using whichever language you feel comfortable with.  Yes, you will use HTML5 as your skeleton and some CSS3 features and client side javascript.  

You will need to connect to your db and that needs a server side language such as ASP.Net, ASP, PHP.    A lot of folks are using rails http://rubyonrails.org/ or django https://www.djangoproject.com/

Then for charting and graphs, you will use javascript libraires.

If you will be creating a native app, you will use xcode https://developer.apple.com/xcode/. Other popular IDE's include http://www.eclipse.org/. I kind of like mono http://www.mono-project.com/Main_Page.   If you prefer a plain old text editor, I like sublime http://www.sublimetext.com/

Your Maps and Charts can be open source using google's api's or there are plenty of for pay charts and graph libraries too.
