Try the MODELGIS software from HSI GeoTrans, Inc. It takes ArcInfo coverages and converts them into the various modflow packages. After running modflow it takes the results and converts them back into ArcInfo coverages. The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee offers courses in the software; I just took their course in Memphis and was pleased. The program is a combination of Fortram, AML's, and C++ programing. It has been compiled for a SUN workstation.

Call Clay Brown at 703-444-7000 or

If you are not in a hurry, wait another year when ESRI comes out with their latest ArcInfo release. The ESRI rep told me it will become easier for software vendors to write these types of programs to run within the GIS.
