If a dense network of static wireless sensors is deployed to measure an time-varying isotropic random field, then sensor data itself, rather than range measurements using specialized hardware, can be used to estimate a map of sensor locations. Furthermore, distributed and scalable sensor localization algorithms can be derived. We apply the manifold learning algorithms Isomap, Locally Linear Embedding (LLE), and Hessian LLE (HLLE). The HLLEbased estimator demonstrates the best bias and variance
