OK, and interesting indeed.  I just went to the URL you sent, and
took a look at cattle comfort index... I think that this would
be very interesting if I knew what it means :-)

Very good.

Well, no and yes.  The McIDAS command to use is IMGREMAP which will
remap an image from one dataset into another dataset.  The input
dataset in your case will be of type SCMI, and the output will
be of type AREA.  So, the first thing you need to do is to create
an ADDE dataset definition for your resultant images.  I suggest:

DSSERVE ADD MYDATA/IMAGES AREA 1 9999 "All images in AREA format

Let me know if you would like me to guide you through the follow-on
processes.

Cheers,

Tom
