Updating the "Location" field

I have a Trello card that has a "Location" field on the right hand side of the card (shown below).  I started this project from a template, so not sure if standard field.  In any case, I am not able to find / update the field using Butler or a bot using  I have a custom field with the address where I pull from a spreadsheet, and want a butler task to copy that address to the location when updated, so the ticket can show the destination in the map.  I can copy the field to the location manually, and it works fine - I just want the step automated.

Is there a variable name that I am missing?

Additional context:
The "Location" field provides the mapping capabilities just fine - it's just that the putting the address in the Location field is a manual process - where I would like to find the name of the field so I can copy the value using a butler or bot

That field is currently not a variable in Butler as the Map power up expects you to search a look and select from the suggested list of names. So to update from another source you need to us the api to update a card. Currently, I have the geocoding and update of card back to back but they can be separated easily. 

Update : Now I have a separate module just to take the location from another card to the new card.

I guess I am not exactly sure how to use what you sent me - please advise

@John Steenson 

I understand. Not many Trello users are using this in their automation. Http request allows you to call third party services to handle something you need. In this case it is to take the data from one card and update another. If this is critical for you, do contact me via my webpage on my profile.

In response to a similar post, I have developed this.

It gets the Geocoding based on your address input and updates the location fields so that Map view will show the new location drop pin and the revised map.
