The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) develops accounting
standards for state and local government agencies. The financial reports
that are generated are used by the public, including issuers and
auditors to assess the financial status of the reporting agencies. One
aspect of the accounting process is the value of assets owned by the
entity. Because the Village of Riverside, IL has a Geographic
Information System (GIS), calculating village owned assets such as
utilities and easements can be performed regularly and quickly. Just
recently the village utilized its GIS to estimate the village owned
easements relative to supporting utility data. Because easement
information is filed away as hard copy documents the alternative would
have required much research and significantly more staff time.
