Designing a localization system for an indoor environment faces more challenges because of multipath and interference problems. In this field, the most important techniques used for such environment, are RSS and ToA which need to be improved especially from more interference because of the huge multipath problems. In this paper, a case study of a selected building is chosen in order to apply the proposed technique of this research. Such proposal is based on the PT ‎ of the area in the case

WI package is used to simulate the case study area and apply such proposal based on RSS and ToA. The results confirm that the estimated locations are close to the real locations by the average error of (2.8) meter and (0.192) meter for ToA corresponding one zone and four zones ‎respectively. ‎ In contrast, the results of our experiment show that the accuracy is improved from an average error of (2.4) meter and (0.217) meter for RSS corresponding one zone and four zones ‎respectively‎. Such results confirm that dividing the case study area into more zones leads to more accuracy.
