Geochemistry for ArcGIS 2.5.3 is compatible with ArcGIS versions 9.3.1 SP2, 10.0 SP5, and 10.1 SP1.

See detailed System Requirements.
Orthographic 3D view added to the 3D viewer
In the 3D viewer you can now view your models in an Orthographic 3D view. When the human eye looks at a scene, objects in the distance appear smaller than objects close by. Orthographic projection ignores this effect and allows you to create drawings that are to scale.
You can toggle between between Perspective and Orthographic views by clicking the new icons on the toolbar. The options are also available under Tools & Settings > Rendering Settings.
