Latitude/Longitude from Order Address

I'm building my first Shopify app. I want to display recent orders on a custom map. The Order API indicates that I should be able to get the latitude/longitude of a billing or shipping address. However, when I try to do this:
order.billing_address.latitude
I'm getting a response of None. I have no trouble getting any other properties (address1, city etc).

Does Shopify geolocate all order addresses? My order was a bogus test order. Any idea why I can't retrieve the lat/lon?

Thanks!

Solved the problem.  Orders are not geolocated until they are fulfilled.

Hey Chris! Do you know whether the geolocation comes from Shopify itself or from the fulfilment apps that are actually doing the fulfilment ?

I believe it's from Shopify itself as they are geocoded even if you aren't using a fulfillment service.
