His consulting service offerings for preservation & design work include 3D scanning, creation of high density point clouds & 3D models, orthophotography, rectified photography, hybrid drawings, mosaic imaging, and accurate measured drawings in CAD format. These can include elevations, plans, sections, reflected ceiling plans that capture an describe a building's envelope and/or its interior spaces and surfaces.
Mr. Aaslestad has been a guest lecturer for the APT (Association for Preservation Technology), Columbia University, and the Universities of Virginia, North Carolina and Florida.

This facade was captured and rendered into a single measured line drawing, enhanced by four additional sheets bearing a mosaic of rectified photographs to convery additional detail about the building’s existing conditions.
Above is what I like to call a “hybrid drawing” of the historic Maria Mitchell House located on the island of Nantucket. A hybrid drawing is one of two things, or possible both: It is a photographic image that behaves like a measured drawing (it is scalable and can provide quantifiable data), or it is a measured drawing that is rich in the way a photographic image is (materials, colors, actual as-found existing conditions are depicted photographically).
Above is a view of the line drawing with all of the rectified images that compose the hybrid drawing “frozen”. In other words, in the CAD drawing, these layers of information are turned off and made invisible so as to see just the line-work itself and a series of polygons that correspond to bit map/raster images that are referenced by the drawing.
Below are a series of images showing each individual rectified photographs as it is situated in the context of the drawing. These added together make the composite image at the top of this post.
