These are miscellaneous projects that are small enough to not warrant their own dedicated page.

Supercharger Parser (Dead)#Top

No longer works, Tesla took down their list of webpages

This script grabs all of the supercharger pages from teslamotors.com and parses them for the GPS coordinates. It will do a Google Maps lookup if it cannot directly find the coordinates on the page. Currently the script is unable to lookup Chinese superchargers.
