stratified layout

how I can create a layout showing layers at different heights? as in the attachment. But the layers have real heights.

Mapping Center Answer:

ArcScene can be used to create this effect.  Each layer in the stack should be given a progressively higher offset.  You will need to experiment with the offset values based on the extent (size) of your layers.

ArcScene's depiction of these layers can be exported to a graphics file that can be imported into ArcMap if you literally need to have this view in an ArcMap layout.
