When will the map be updated to reflect the network model? It is out of data compared with the one provided through the subscriber services.

The latest Model (version 7) is due be deployed into WebTris by the end of November

It doesn't appear that the long promised model update has gone ahead, why is this?

The update to v7.1 of the network model is currently going though the UAT process in our pre production environment. Hopefully it'll be deployed in December.

Having already missed the end of November timeline and now half-way through December, do we look on course for this to be updated for December, bearing in mind the holiday period that is fast approaching?

Hi James. The model passed UAT and is currently with our developers to implement into the platform. I've asked for an update on where this is and will post when I know more.

We're on version 7 now. :)

When will the next update be done?

How do these models track to the other network models that HE publish?

It's currently scheduled for April 2018 although there is some give and take on that from the map provider.

As for mapping between network model types... it's a persistent issue for any data analysts using a variety of sources. HAPMS and IAM IS are similar, and NTIS is similar to HAPMS and typically they're fairly close. Most difficulties lie around connectivity of junctions and where precisely links break on connection with other links (I.e, does the main carriageway link break at the lane 2 right edge of a slip, or the lane 1 left edge of the slip, etc), although it's fair to say each model will have its own flavour of mapping difficulties and those 3 are just 3 of many. Each model will have its own schedule for updates so versioning is often a overcomplicated issue. It's quite a large question
