Kumo’s network analysis tool creates network maps by hand or by importing data from a local spreadsheet. The Google Sheets integration tool allows users to build maps from live data, or to crowd-source the map by making the Google Sheet publicly editable. RightsCon 2019 highlighted the potential to apply the tool to enable human rights research and monitoring. For example, researchers and defenders can use open-source network analysis tools to illustrate relationships that will support the effort to bring human rights violators to justice.
