An algorithm to extract contour lines using wireless sensor networks is proposed for environmental monitoring in this work. In contrast to previous work on edge detection that is primarily concerned with the region of a certain phenomenon, contour lines offer more detailed information about the underlying phenomenon such as signal amplitude, density and source location. A distributed algorithm to extract the contour line information from local measurements is developed so that the phenomenon can be monitored in the basestation without demanding excessive raw data transmission. Simulation results are provided to demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed algorithm.
