I need to work with ArcGis by the amount of data that I use and the answers I need, but would like to see my maps in perspective and I can't find a way. Does anyone knows how to do it?

ArcMap can only show plane maps. If you want to view your data in 3D you have to buy 3D Analyst Extension ($ 2500 in US).
