The fact that your LOC/AREAS dataset includes the topographic images
included in the Unidata McIDAS distribution confirms that it is indeed
a dataset whose members are all possible images in AREA file format
which is what is needed.  So, yes, you can use the LOC/AREAS dataset
that was created for you.

re:
> Will the commands for the next steps change?

All references to the MYDATA/IMAGES dataset should be changed to LOC/AREAS.
Other than that, there should be no other changes needed.

Cheers,

Tom
