Cell coordinates

Very often the latitudinal position (of a cell) is required in raster modelling as an explicit factor; e.g. in regression modelling of species diversity.
In ArcInfo GRID you had the option of calling the X or the Y coordiante of the cells by using the scalar var $$XMAP or $$YMAP. This options seems to me to having disappeared. Is that really correct? Or is it embedded in another function in the new version of ArcGIS?
I hope someone can help me?
