Location Estimation has become important for many applications of indoor wireless networks. Received Signal Strength (RSS) fingerprinting methods have been widely used for location estimation. The accuracy and response time of estimation are critical issue in location estimation system. Most of the location estimation system suffers with the problem of scalability and unavailability of all the access points at all the location for large site. In this paper, we have proposed a distributed location estimation method, which divide the location estimation system into subsystems. Our method partition the input signal space and output location space into clusters on the basis of visibility of access points at various locations of the site area. Each cluster of input signal space together with output location subspace is used to learn the association between RSS fingerprint and their respective location in a subsystem. We have compared our results with benchmark RADAR method. Experimental results show that our method provide better results in terms of accuracy and response time in comparison to centralized systems, in which a single system is used for large site.
