The main task of the mobile ad-hoc network is to reduce traffic and achieve high accuracy of the network. By using the KNN query processing, the query-issuing node first forwards a KNN query using geo-routing to the nearest node from the point specified by the query. Then, the nearest node from the query point forwards the query to other nodes close to the query point, and each node receiving the query replies with the information on itself. In this process, the adopt two different approaches: the explosion method and the spiral method.
