Indoor localization with sensing capabilities is the missing link for a Geospatial Information System and sensor web. The sensor network is capable of environmental monitoring and geo-tagging sensor data. This paper presents a unique algorithm which uses fusion of Radio Signal Strength Indicator and Time Difference of Arrival for centimeter level accurate indoor localization using wireless sensor network motes. The paper also proposes the integration of various environmental sensors with wireless sensor network. The acquired sensor data can be geo-tagged with the translated global coordinates and additional sensory metadata. With the use of semantic sensor web, this sensor information can be utilized in various decision making scenarios for critical situations. The main goal of the paper is to use indoor localization assisted by sensor fusion and semantic web for first responders in emergency scenarios.
