Location based query services are popular, and have a great demand. The authors have proposed a framework using Anonymous query processing to find the exact location of the places. Previous network database requires no specified storage or functions. In this paper, an anonymous query processing is utilized, where the user can send a query and get the results without leaking their identity to the server. By this anonymous technique, the user can identify the locations very easily using two types of query. This technique has achieved better performance.
