Sensors in wireless sensor network are often randomly deployed. In most application, physical positioning of sensors is very important. The physical position of the node can be determined based on the relative position of them. The relative position of nodes depends on the network topology and neighbouring informations. The aim of this paper is to propose an algorithm to neighbouring informations discovery with reduced power consumption of overall network. Then we provide an algorithm to extract map of network based on neighbouring information.
