I'm working to improve data coverage on Scottish mountains/hills (currently all Munro (Q1320721)) and the DoBIH is probably the most referenced authority for information on hills in Ireland and the UK. Inclusion of the identifying number in the DoBIH provides a stable link between their data and the wikidata item (plus it is likely used by many hill walking websites). The number is described here.

  • @SilentSpike: I tried to create this property but an automated check failed: example value "278" does not match regular expression regex [1-9]\d*. − Pintoch (talk) 15:37, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
    • @Pintoch: That's odd, I suppose it could be that the \d escape sequence isn't supported in whichever syntax wikidata is using. To be more strict you could try [1-9][0-9]* --SilentSpike (talk) 17:09, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
