The problem here is IMO thread synchronisation.
Your workers need a event loop to receive signals and
the connection must be made with Qt::QueuedConnection.

The good thing is that the code is executed in the receivers
thread, so you can call dataChanged within that call.

I would do the following:

- Create a new class derived from QAbstractItemModel, that
  holds all work data of the different threads.
- Create a slot in that class, so that your worker threads
  can fire data changes.
- Connect the model to the view with setModel.
- If the slot is called from the worker threads,
  update work data and fire dataChanged.
  The view will start asking your model for
  new data.

Attention: You have to deal with the different roles!
           The function data() of the model do (depending on
           the role) much more then even sends the data to the view.
           There are also declarative roles!

BTW: Worker threads in a QMap sounds a bit advanced
     in my ears ;-).

Best Regards,
