like there are lot's of options. We have used Websurveyor with
a capability for large networks that guards against a kind of "survey
fatigue." One can cluster a longer list (e.g., 160 individuals we did
recently) by category (25 country locations in our case). Then ask
the somewhat more manageable question of interaction by category and follow up
with only those people from those categories. When one is relatively
certain that people remember the categories of node's they interact with
accurately, it has overcome the ennui inherent in plowing through a very long
list of possible connections.
These products will translate to network
surveys as long as they have a "check all that apply" response type
boxes rather than radio buttons).
