In this paper, a geographical location based routing scheme is proposed that works effectively for different hierarchical networks and thus supports an important aspect of network scalability. Further, herein a heuristic is proposed that minimizes the occurrence of hot spot to improve the overall life time of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). This utilizes residual energy estimation based on energy of each sensor node. Its implementation mainly comprises of the geographical location of each sensor in Binary Location Index (BLI) representation form, precise updates about the link with shortest path, and coverage of the each sensor; the method which is without change of cluster head is compared with the change of cluster head based on BLI for fixed single sink.
