Question

Can Geostatistical Analyst detect errors in data?

Yes. Exploratory Spatial Data Analysis (ESDA) tools can be used to detect both global and local outliers. Tools are also embedded into the Geostatistical Wizards to identify erroneous data; for example, variography, detrending, validation and cross-validation dialog boxes.
