About SNA Web Survey

The SNA Web Survey site was developed by June Holley to speed the network mapping process. It enables network mappers to develop a customized survey. The survey can be taken either by sending participants a unique web address or by printing a paper copy that can be easily entered into the web survey site. The information from all the surveys is exported in exactly to format needed by the Smart Network Analyzer software or Valdis Krebs InFlow software

The site is available for $200 per use. You may access the site once you pay for it using Paypal or by sending a check to June Holley. She will then set up a password protected survey site for you.
