Hi- I have done some work in this area. See attached. there are also some papers on my website about reasoning in geoscience that might be of interest; in particular Gobert (2000) IJSE and Gobert & Clement (1999) JRST.

Subject: references on 3D thinking
I'm looking for references about common mistakes people make in
interpreting three-dimensional structures. The one I know about is
Kali and Orion, 1996 (Spatial Abilities of High-School Students in the
Perception of Geologic Structures, JRST 33, 369-391). What else should
I look for?
