      Hi Wolfram,

      You forgot to mention what you want to do with these data.
      If the objective is to perform kriging, then you can use
      either kriging with nonsystematic errors or soft
      indicator kriging to account for the variable level of
      reliability of your data.

      Cheers,

      Pierre
