Add Geospatial components to your App (Preview)

[This topic is pre-release and is subject to change.]

You can add a number of geospatial components to your canvas app to support scenarios that involve mapping locations and addresses.

The following prebuilt components can be used for geospatial and mapping scenarios:

  • Interactive map
  • Address input

Prerequisites

  1. An admin must enable the geospatial features in the Power Platform admin center for the environment. This requires reviewing and agreeing to specific terms of service.
  2. Enable the geospatial features for each app.

NOTE : These geospatial components are currently an experimental preview feature that’s only available in https://preview.create.powerapps.com 


Enable the geospatial features for the environment

Before you can use geospatial features in your apps, an admin must enable access to the features for the environment where you want to create your app.

The geospatial features require additional terms of use that must be reviewed and agreed to.

  1. Open the Power Platform admin center.
  2. On the Environments tab, select the environment you want to use for your apps, and then select Settings from the top menu.
  3. Expand Product, and then select Features.

4. Under Geospatial services (preview), set the toggle switch to On. A terms of service notice will appear. Read through the terms of service, and if you agree, select the checkbox I agree to the terms of service, and then select Enable.

5. Select Save at the bottom of the settings page.
