Iowa State Association of Assessors Conference

Yesterday the Iowa GIS Service Bureau presented at the annual conference for the Iowa State Association of Assessors in Des Moines.  As part of the Service Bureau's responsibilities, we partnered with the Iowa Department of Revenue to present assessors with some introductory GIS processes for agricultural land assessment.

The presentation touched on some of the benefits and problems when using a GIS to summarize average soil CSRs in agricultural parcels, and also how landuse could be incorporated into the valuation process.

Use of GIS in county governments varies greatly across Iowa's 99 counties, but based on the comments during and after the presentation, it seemed to be received as informational and worthwhile to many in the audience.
