Abstract. Adequate coverage is an important issue in geosensor networks in order to fulfill the sensing applications in urban areas. GIS as well as Optimization methods are widely used to distribute geosensors in the network to achieve the desired level of coverage. Most of the algorithms applied in urban domain suffer from the lack of considering real environmental information. In this paper, the problem of placing sensors to get optimum coverage is studied by investigating the concept of urban contextual information in sensor network. Then, a local GIS-based context-aware framework of sensor network deployment optimization method is introduced. Obtained results of our algorithm under different working conditions and applications show the effectiveness of our approach.
