Dear colleagues


In the context of a research project which involves 7 teams in 4 countries,
we are looking for software which ideally allows us to:

-          Enter network and attribute data (plus attachments) in a
decentralized way on a joint database by research teams.

-          Possibility to give stakeholders (with some kind of visiting
login) the option to enter their own data.

-          Launch online queries in the dataset.

-          Present the network (and other) data in a built-in visualizer.

-          Easy export of data to other programs.


If anyone knows something in that direction, that would be super helpful.
Thanks in advance! Manuel
