Strength and Orientation of Short Solenoid Field

I have been reviewing a number of problems on determining the magnetic field along the axis of a short solenoid, but have yet to find any reference material on the strength and orientation of a short solenoid when measured at some radial and axial seperation from the solenoid.

Can someone point me to the appropriate reference material or equations which would help me predict the expected magnetic field vector from a short solenoid as measured by some point around the device?

e.g. suppose I have a 3 foot long solenoid which is laying horizontally. If I know the number of turns on the solenoid, the core material and the amperage applied, can I sample at some axial and lateral seperation with a 3 axis inductive coil and usie only the magnitudes of the 3 measurements and known orientation of the coil to determine the distance and direction from the coil to the solenoid?

I have all I need to conduct the experiment but would like to compute what I expect to measure before I start the experiment.
