Q - question

An image inserted in Map is not georeferenced.

A - answer My raster file (TIFF, CIT, BIL, CAL...) is not inserted automatically on coordinates according its georeference data.

Use the Map (not AutoCAD) command for inserting (attaching) a raster image. The right command for georeferenced images is Map > Image > Insert (i.e. _MAPIINSERT), not Insert > Raster image (i.e. _IMAGE, or _IMAGEATTACH).
