A major challenge faced in Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks (MANET) is locating mobile devices for communication, especially with high node mobility and sparse node density due to disaster in disaster area. The use of environmental context parameters is important in interactive applications in this area. To allow for self-configuration of MANETs by enabling them to be adaptive to varying context parameters values. Therefore, Clustering schemes offer a practical way of managing these nodes in disaster area providing cluster creation, cluster head selection, scalability, location identification, location updates when dealing with location management for MANET in disaster area.
