Summary Sensor nodes are closely tied with their geographic location and their connectivity. In recent years many routing protocols have been developed to provide efficient strategy. But most of them are either focus on the geographic proximity or on connectivity. However in sparse network, Geographic routing would fail at local dead ends where a node has no neighbour closer to destination. In contrast, connectivity-based routing may result in non-optimal path and overhead management. In this paper we designed a scalable and distributed routing protocol, GeoConnect, which considers geographic proximity and connectivity for choosing next hop. In GeoConnecl, we construct a new naming system that integrates geographic and connectivity information into a node identification. We use dissimilarity function to compute the dissimilarity and apply a distributed routing algorithm to route packets. The experimental results show that GeoConnect routing provides robust and better performance than sole geographic routing or connectivity routing.
