Networks composed of dynamically repositioning mobile hosts require location awareness to provide new geographic services and to maximize routing efficiency and quality of service. Because wireless networks can operate in a 3D physical environment, exploiting mobile hosts' location information is both natural and inevitable. Emerging geographic services based on mobile ad-hoc networks (manets) must confront several challenges, including how to increase positioning accuracy and how to establish a connection from location information to the vast body of Web data, as in a tour-guide system for example
