In response to ... >Sounds like a job for Arc/INFO's GRID. I use GRID, but it isn't really 3-D. You can create a "stack" of grids, but they don't really have depth, just a series of 2-D maps. Of course, digital terrain models are supported in GRID, but they are sort of 2.5-D, they have the Z (vertical) direction recorded, and there is a set of terrain modeling functions, but as far as I know, you can't model truly 3-D things like stratigraphy. I'd be interested in what you come up with.
