    Measured data often come with measurement uncertainties. It would be helpful if input data to the geostatistical analyst could be weighted (through e.g. a 'weight fleld' in the attribute table). See also:

    By the same time this might allow for specifying NoData values, as requested in another post here NODATA value in GeoStatistical Analyst Wizard. Weights would allow to exclude both separate data points without having to resort to separate actions like selecting all NoData values and to incorporate measurement errors in the interpolation process.
