Question on checking GPS coordinates

I am mapping GPS coordinates and then manually zooming into each coordinate to make sure that it is falling near evidence of a village (near buildings, roads, or a deforested area), and that the points are not falling within a water body.  I am just overlaying the GPS layer with the Basemap.  Essentially, I am "cleaning" the GPS data by checking each point for its accuracy. 


I am wondering if there is a certain way to sort the GPS layer so that points "within a water body" or a "certain distance away from buildings/roads/deforestation" could be made apparent? 

This way, I would not have to go through each point, zooming into each one to visually assess this.


Please let me know if this makes sense and if there is a way to do this!
