Tslaq.org includes aerial photography from the Shorty Air Force, a group of pseudonymous researchers who fly over the company’s parking lots and delivery centers to count Tesla’s inventory cars.
Other photos on the site come from a group calling themselves the Shorty Ground Force, which takes photos from publicly accessible points near Tesla factories or facilities using smartphone cameras or hobbyist drones.
Some contributors tally up the cars that they can count in the images. Others provide theories about what’s observable in the photos when considered along with Tesla’s own claims and disclosures.
Tslaq.org makes all the photos and videos featured on the site available under a creative commons license, meaning other independent bloggers or mainstream media outlets don’t have to seek permission before re-publishing them.
