Is there any way to set a latitude and longitude attribute type for a dimension?

I am trying to connect from Power BI to an Analysis Services Cube (2016) using the live connection and a map visualizer. Is there anyway to define the latitude and longitude in Visual Studio for the dimension attribute so Power BI picks it up? I notice there are a bunch of Geography types in VS but I don't see lat and long. The only way seems to be to import the data into Power BI, and then change the type there. I would like to avoid that. Thank you.
