How do I find the map that shows the tribal distribution from the book of Joshua?

There is one in Biblical Places Maps, click this link to have Logos open it.

Sorry if you only wanted it opened in the Atlas, i have not purchased that dataset. In this case someone else on the forum will hopefully guide you to the Atlas version of the map.

A couple of strategies. One is to go to Search, Select Media. Click "All Media" and narrow the type to "Maps." Then search Tribes and Joshua.

In Atlas, there are no good "tribal boundaries" maps, probably because there is not enough information for clear boundaries. But if you type "Israel" in the Atlas, you can see some rough labels.

You can also go to Factbook and type "Tribes of Israel," this will give some maps. The Twelve Tribes will also give you some info (I don't know why these are tagged differently). It is actually that search which gave me what I think you are looking for in the Holman Bible Handbook.

Instead of using the atlas, use the media search feature. If you have any Bible handbooks, like the Holman Bible Handbook, you should get a hit. 

Try this: logos4:Search;kind=Media;q=$3CTopic_The_Twelve_Tribes$3E;match=stem
