The Satellite Sentinel Project, or SSP, was conceived by George Clooney during an October 2010 visit to Southern Sudan with Enough Project co-founder, John Prendergast. It combines satellite imagery analysis and field reports using Google's Map Maker technology, as well as employing on-the-ground video, further corroborating the analysis of the satellite imagery, to deter the resumption of war between North and South Sudan. The project provides an early warning system to deter mass atrocities by focusing world attention and generating rapid responses on human rights and human security concerns. The Satellite Sentinel Project was first to confirm the razings of the villages of Maker Abior, Todach, and Tajalei in Sudan's contested Abyei region. - Source: Wikipedia
