Enhanced Supercharger Map: zoom in, change range indicators

Enhanced Supercharger Map: zoom in, change range indicators

Just for fun I created an enhanced supercharger map:

() Allows one to zoom in, all the way to street level if desired.
() Allows one to change the range shown by circles around each supercharger.
() Click on the supercharger icon to get a link to that supercharger's web page.
() Click "advanced options" to change circle color, opacity, border color, etc.

This is actually pretty useful...
for example my practical range is 180 miles ( leave always a reserve ) and I want to charge in Gilroy, go to SF and back to Gilroy and estimate 30 miles driving in SF. So (180-30)/2 = 75 miles circles - I can immediately see if I can make it in and out on a single standard charge. If it is borderline I do a range charge, when outside then I have to look for additional charging places.

This is nice! Should really be useful as more SC's roll out to help plan longer trips and limit stops because of anxiety. Very cool.

Gizmotoy | 2013年9月27日

Very cool. Any chance it's possible to make it so that when you click on a Supercharger, its range circle gets a different color? Sometimes it's hard to tell which circle is which charger when zoomed out.

Blueshift | 2013年9月27日

You can change the circle colors by clicking "advanced options..." in the upper right hand corner, then select "Fill Color" from the drop down menu. Or slide the "Fill Opacity" slider to the right, making it darker.

I'll continue to improve this over time. Any suggestions are welcome.

Great stuff! Thanks BlueShift!

Skotty | 2013年9月30日

I like the adjustable range. Usually the circles are shown using a radius of the cars range, but if your focus is taking a long trip, it's better to set the radius to half the cars range; that way, as long as the circles touch between two superchargers, you know you can probably make the trip between them (once you drive half a charge from the last supercharger, you better be no more than half a charge to the next).

Of course, this is still limited to as the crow flies. The ultimate map would look more like lightning bolts that chart out actual road miles along connecting roads, possibly taking speed limits into account as well or having adjustable speed settings.

LV2SF99999 | 2013年9月30日

This is awesome! It would be great to be able to add your location (a new pin drop) and have it generate a circle for that to see which superchargers are in reach of where you start with a full charge.


lolachampcar | 2013年9月30日

thank you Blue Shift

cfOH | 2013年9月30日

This is awesome -- truly!

ENGINEER | 2013年9月30日

Absolutely incredible. It will be perfect for 60kw owners who still want to plan cross country trips but are unsure how their range will fare on the SC map.

Blueshift | 2013年11月5日

New version available now.

New features:

() Under "show advanced options" there is now a table with the raw data for all superchargers.
() It is now possible to turn off the range indicator circle for any supercharger.
() You can now right-click anywhere on the map and add a marker with your own label and an adjustable range indicator (see picture below).

Blueshift | 2013年11月5日

Custom markers with adjustable range indicators:

jackhub | 2013年11月9日

This is a great tool, Blueshift. Very useful when actually making trips.


Brian H | 2013年11月9日

Just beautiful. Very nice work.

hueyhoolihan | 2013年11月11日

nice job!

but ANYTHING would be an improvement, IMO.

i figure they must have a some underachiever or maybe some bigwig's nephew or niece, in the IT department and they gave him/her this job because they thought..., well, they thought they could minimize the damage he or she could do... IDK.

whatever the cause it's not very representative of the quality i've come to expect from Tesla Motors.

Timo | 2013年11月11日

That's not Teslamotors work. Read the bottom of the main page.

Brian H | 2013年11月11日

He means the original, official version.

Timo | 2013年11月11日

That would make more sense.

JaredBanyard | 2013年11月11日

Awesome. Maybe we can get the planned sites on here as well, with a switch to turn on and off current, under-construction, and planned?

GeekEV | 2013年11月11日

This is very cool! After playing around with different distances, etc., I think it would be really cool if I could put in starting and ending points and then use selected superchargers as waypoints in between to get directions.

GeekEV | 2013年11月11日

I guess the custom map markers could be used as starting and ending point.

dj | 2013年11月13日

Fantastic! Its reduced Range Anxiety for my co-pilot. Funny how there is always a delta in the Range Anxiety when two or more are in the car. Holding the wheel makes you more optimistic or is it hopeful?

Brian H | 2013年11月13日

You have much control over wh/mi with your right foot, so you feel in charge! Your passenger, not so much.

Benz | 2013年11月14日

Today there are two ribbon-cutting ceremonies:
Rocky Mount, NC
Quartzsite, AZ

vouteb | 2013年11月14日


This is great

Now go Global and Europe!


Nicoletta | 2013年11月14日

Blue Shift,

Can you change the Quartzsite SC from 'under construction' to an active SC.


William9 | 2013年11月14日

Great tool. Thanks!

Earl and Nagin ... | 2013年11月14日

Per Cheyenne, WY city planning:
New supercharger in Cheyenne at:
Frontier Mall
1400 Dell Range Blvd, Cheyenne, WY
The plans were submitted last month and approved last week. The charge station will be located behind Chipotle and Olive Garden at the Mall.
The permits have been issued

Blueshift | 2013年11月14日

@Nicoletta RE: Quartzsite acitve


Blueshift | 2013年11月14日

I couldn't find any information to confirm that these locations are under construction:

Roseville, CA
Huntsville, TX

And if they are, what are their coordinates? I prefer to have coordinates of under-construction sites before adding them to the wiki map as it is more than just progress tracking image, but a navigation tool as well. I plan to add routing features soon.

Docrob | 2013年11月14日

This is a far better representation of superchargers than even Tesla's supercharger map, with the addition of the future planned location slider and perhaps eventually some routing functionality this would really be the ultimate supercharger map. The variable range slider is the most elegant way to accurately represent supercharger utility across a wide range of driving habits, weather conditions and battery pack sizes. Congratulations and thank you

Benz | 2013年11月15日

@Blue Shift

Regarding the location of the Supercharger at Huntsville, Texas, you should take a look at this post:

Nicoletta | 2013年11月15日

@BlueShift, a quick search on Google Maps shows the coordinates of the Hunstville location as:


Nicoletta | 2013年11月15日

@Blueshift, we also have photographic evidence of a Worthington, MN supercharger under construction:

With this approximate coordinate:

Looks like Tesla is getting serious about the coast-to-coast route.

Blueshift | 2013年11月15日

Thanks, added Worthington MN and Huntsville TX.

gill_sans | 2013年11月15日

Excellent tool. Thank you, @BlueShift.

jonlivesay | 2013年11月15日

If Roseville construction starts I will post cords. So far no action

GeekEV | 2013年11月15日

I don't think the dot labeled Roseville, CA in the other thread is accurate. That's nowhere near Roseville, CA (which would be indistinguishable from the Folsom, CA location at that map scale). Based on the intersection of freeways that looks like Woodland, CA to me. Though there are strong rumors of a Roseville charger either at the Galleria Mall or the Rocklin service center (which are pretty close to each other). Is there some other pending Roseville location I've missed?

edcalis | 2013年11月16日

History in the making!!!

Benz | 2013年11月18日

@ Blue Shift

Here are the coordinates of the first Supercharger location in Germany: 48.441956,10.433836

Please add this location as under construction on your Supercharger map. Thank

"The first supercharger In Germany is coming to Jettingen/Scheppach, between Munich and Stuttgart, at the Highway No.8, 25 kilometers west of Ulm".

And here is a link to a news article about it:

Nicoletta | 2013年11月18日

Great news that we are finally getting a supercharge on the Continent.

Benz | 2013年11月18日

@ Blue Shift

Here are the CORRECT coordinates of the first Supercharger location in Germany: 48.411685,10.439755

Please add this location as under construction on your Supercharger map. Thanks

Sorry for the mistake.

PapaSmurf | 2013年11月18日

Tesla should just adopt this map instead of the lousy one they have on their website.

Good job Blue Shift !!!

Araujor20 | 2013年11月18日
Brian H | 2013年11月18日

So, Norway is not considered part of "the Continent"? Faskinatin'.

Lessmog | 2013年11月19日

No, NO is part of Skandinävia. In some ways it is even not part of Europe, if one only counts the EU-part. Although it is closely associated; in fact in some ways far ahead.

Timo | 2013年11月19日
Blueshift | 2013年11月19日

Added German site. Hope I got the label right :-)

tezzla.SoCal | 2013年11月19日

BlueShift, I noticed that the circles are not the same size, the farther north the circles get larger.

btw: I really like this map. Thanks.

graphite | 2013年11月19日

The circles shouldn't necessarily be the same size, since the top part of the map is being stretched more than below from whatever projection type that is.

The real question is whether they really even should be circles but more and more elliptical. I'm sure someone around here is more up on their map projections than me...
