As you know the last step in Geostatistical Analyst is cross validation.
My question is that, how the predicted value column has been calculated. (attached figure).


My understanding is that Kriging is the exact value interpolation model. This means that the predicted value for the entered data point should be the same as measured one. which results to error equal to zero.

I am not sure how the cross validation has been done in GA. Is it based on some sort of leave one out method?

I would appreciate if you guys could shed some light on this for me.
