I work for an anti-poaching organization (https://rhino-force.org/) with a reasonably successful intelligence arm that makes around ~70 wildlife-related arrests each year. We are looking to ramp up this side of our work and part of that is an easy-to-use, affordable database to store profiles of suspects, linking them to incidents, firearms, and more suspects.
The functions I foresee would not be complex, things like:
- Flexible categories for data input
- Export/import to excel
- Entity and relationship visualisation
- Allows for temporal and spatial data e.g. views over certain time periods, maps with markers.
SMART Profiles would fulfill 90% of our desired functions but we find SMART profiles to be unfortunately quite slow even with low data. Does anyone know of a database program they would recommend?
Thank you very much in advance!

Have you looked at online db builders such as airtable, getgrist, coda.io?
The one requirement that is a bit non-standard is handling of spatial data. A quick search showed that airtable has a plugin for this. The others may as well.
