Abstract: Localizing a sensor node is one of the critical issue for wireless sensor networks and hence Internet of Things. For effective use and importance of data, the position, from where the data is originated, is very important for various applications. The number of methods has been developed for identifying the location of a sensor node in the network. One of the widely used methods is Multidimensional scaling. In this paper location of the sensor, the node has been identified with the algorithm using the heuristic technique. The heuristic technique is applied to calculate the distance matrix. To increase the accuracy distance approximation is used. It is mandatory to have an efficient, economic and scalable sensor node position estimation process, the results obtained, experimentally, proves the accuracy and effectiveness of the methods discussed for use in Internet of Things with variable topology and
