DO I need to level floors

I am going to put laminate throughout house over hardwood(that irrepairable to where I want it). I know 1 room will need it but is the concave bad enough in the other areas that it will need it too? How many bags should I get? The board I used is 100% straight and 69" longName:  IMG_0397.JPG

As bad as that is I'd be under the floor in the crawl space or basement seeing how to fix it.
Old house = over spanned, undersized possible fungus or insect damaged, cracked joist.
Picture under the floor in that area would be great.

How is the level going parallel to the floor direction? All you dips are showing perpendicular to the direction of the floor.

It is also possible the level you show is caused by a single "high" joist which makes the rest of the floor look like it has a dip when it really is flat.
