Laser-Scan (LSL) was a British technology company based in Cambridge, England, founded in 1969, which produced world-leading graphics hardware and then software for computer graphics, digital mapping, charting, and geographic information handling.

Laser-Scan started providing software to accompany the original Sweepnik scanner and the HRD-1 display/plotter. This broadened to include support for later hardware devices, but also map editors, line-following map digitisers, the map production suite LAMPS, etc.
