I agree that Benetech/HRDAG is a good resource. 

For vis alternatives:

I have also looked at http://www.panopticon.com/ for vis software, not opensource. 
If you are thinking about large amounts of data, some ppl at nytimes have presented a few times on quite interesting ways to use processing (open source) for data viz.
Flare (http://flare.prefuse.org/) and protovis (http://vis.stanford.edu/protovis/) may be an alternative for web based tools.

I'm also working on a evidence management sys, and would love to learn more about how is that you are approaching that. I have looked at Martus, OpenEvSys, and a few others

Best,
@epiraces

You should talk to the Human Rights Data Analysis Group at Benetech,
which develops and uses free software to do this kind of work.
