hello, I have DEM data and would like to know how would I go about generating a cross-section. thanks.

Mapping Center Answer:

If you have the 3D Analyst extension, you can create a profile graph quite easily.  The online help will step you through the process.  There are also profile graph tools in Military Analyst and PLTS if you have those extensions.

What about sub-surficial cross sections derived from point data (i.e. boreholes, test wells, etc.)? I'm trying to find a more simple workflow that doesn't involve creating multiple lines (as graphics!) in 3D Analyst, and way too many data conversion steps. Any ideas?

You could do this in 3D Analyst, but it can be a rather involved process if you are starting out with borehole and/or well data. We suggest you look into tools from Aquaveo like Groundwater Analyst and Subsurface Analyst.
