I downloaded a bit of LiDAR. I created a LAS dataset in ArcMap 10.3 and it's projecting about 500km east of my target location. The coordinate system is supposedly incorporated into the data (NAD_1983_2011_StatePlane_Florida_East_FIPS_0901, in m), so is it just intrinsically incorrect or am I doing something incorrectly? I tried a ton of different projections and can't get it right. Any advice would be appreciated!

It looks like a false easting was assigned:
How can I correct for this? Thank you for your help!
Where are you getting that projection string? Is it from the projection file (.prj)? And are you viewing this string in notepad or something similar? If so, you can just change that false easting to a 0.0 and save it again as the .prj file.
The difference between the false easting in your listed CRS that's using US survey feet, and the meter version of the zone is 456 km. Could the LIDAR have the wrong coordinate system defined?
Does it look like it could be sized wrong as well as offset?
Brittany, I'm having the same problem with the same LiDAR files. Which CS did you find ultimately worked? My Key West dataset is locating itself about halfway between Homestead and the Bahamas.
