Location aware sensors can be used in many areas such as military and civilian applications. Wireless sensor networks help to identify the accurate location of the event. In this paper a cost effective schema for localization has been proposed. It uses two beacon nodes to identify the location of unknown nodes. It also uses flooding and estimating method to accurately identify the location of other nodes. Available area is divided into zones and beacons are provided for each zone. Beacon nodes are placed in appropriate locations normally two in a zone to provide location information. Using the two nodes location of unknown nodes can be calculated accurately.
