This paper addresses the existing research and adds another aspect of functionality by incorporating pertinent sensor nodes to provide a dynamic location discovery and estimation. The software used provides an easy graphical user interface to visualize a particular location in accordance with geographical latitude and longitude. A simple real time location estimation technique is worked out for wireless sensor networks based on manual deployment of sensors. The proposed scheme finds more efficient solutions with less quantity of sensors as compared to existing deployment schemes. The set up is evaluated exclusively in real environments using IRIS sensor nodes supported by a global positioning system module to provide visualization of an outdoor location. The results are offered by Google Earth application.
