Nowadays, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are most growing research area because of its low cost, infrastructure less, increased capabilities of nodes, real-time and accurate monitoring. It is employed to gather and forward information to the destination. Location of the event or collected information is very crucial for successive operations. This information may be obtained using the global positioning system, but it is not feasible for energy constraints networks. Location of sensor nodes

It is highly required to design energy aware, economical and scalable localization techniques for WSNs. In this paper, we have done analyze of various localization techniques, and few possible future research directions.
