Display SharePoint List Locations on Map

I have a SharePoint list 'Contacts' which has a 'Location' column.


I want to display all of my contacts on a map in PowerApps.


I am using the geospacial map component (preview) in PowerApps to do this, but it seems the only way to pass location data is in the form of longitude and latitude. 


However, there is no longitude and latitude available in the SharePoint data. The only Contacts.Location fields available are:





Postal Code




I know the longitude and latitude exists somewhere in the SharePoint data because I can extract it in Power BI, I just don't know how to get to it from PowerApps.


Even if I could create a calculated column in the SharePoint list which formats the location data as longitude/latitude I could then reference this from the PowerApp, but I can't find how to do this either.


Thanks in advance.
