The present invention provides a system and method for exploiting location awareness to improve the communication performance in a wireless cognitive radio system. The invention includes determining the absolute position information for the cognitive radio system, receiving digital topographical data related to the absolute position information, classifying the environment of the cognitive radio system based on the absolute position and the topographical data, matching the classified environment with corresponding statistical parameters and improving the communication performance of the cognitive radio system by adapting the cognitive radio system according to the corresponding statistical parameters.
