3D location knowledge of sensor node in a sensor network has many practical applications. This paper proposes a new algorithm for finding 3D location of sensor node in a sensor network by using radiation pattern of antenna with Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI). Proposed localization algorithm is developed by considering target node equipped with half wave dipole antenna which has omnidirectional radiation pattern. The results show that proposed algorithm estimates 3D location of sensor node in a sensor network with low average error (< 0.5m), when compared to its actual location.
