In this podcast, Lily Edelman-Gold, a young female professional in the California transportation and electric vehicle (EV) industry, discusses “A Future of Fair Fueling,” her mapping project for equitable access of EV charging stations within Monterey, California.  She walks us through how she created this project using ArcGIS Pro, a geographic information system (GIS) software through which professionals can analyze and display data through maps.

ArcGIS Pro is a crucial tool for various environmental applications, such as mapping runoff risk to reefs and monitoring the illegal wildlife trade. Edelman-Gold’s project maps recommended EV charging locations in Monterey that ensures equitable access for disadvantaged communities.  

A soon-to-be graduate from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS) in Monterey, Edelman-Gold will be graduating with a Masters in International Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management.  Listen to learn more!
