Dimension Explorer, an addin tool for ArcMap, has just been released by the Esri Applications Prototype Lab!

Dimension Explorer 1.0 makes it easier to work with  time-aware and multidimensional data in ArcMap 10.3 by providing slider controls for navigation.  It works by retrieving dimensional information from a map layer to build an interactive dimensional model that can be edited and saved in the map document.  Dimension Explorer is the successor to the Timeliner addin for ArcMap, which also works in ArcMap 10.3 and can be downloaded here.

With the 10.3 release of ArcGIS, the mosaic dataset now supports multidimensional data in NetCDF, GRIB, and HDF format.  Dimension Explorer supports map layers based on mosaic datasets and image services which are time-aware or multidimensional, and time-aware feature classes.

Download Dimension Explorer and let us know what you think of it in the comments!
