how to extract spikes from a figure

Hello, eveyone.
I am processing some borehole data, but I have a problem now. After I plot the data, the figure has many spikes. I want extract those spikes.
Each spike is different,i.e.,different width and length. I was thinking using a moving average filter, but it does not work well. Or maybe I could define a cutoff value,like three times of the std of the total data. However, those spikes or outliers affect statistics, so its not accurate.
I am wondering is there any way I could do it automatically instead of manually pick up the start and end point of each spike.
If anyone has any advice, please let me know. Many thanks.

hello,walter. Yes,I wanna both location and widths. The one from file exchange may work out. I will try this one. Thx again.

If the built in peak detector doesn't work, then you might look elsewhere, such as to this paper:
