Currently there is no easy way to link to the extremely detailed information on the Swiss Inventory of historical ways Switzerland (IVS) which contains information for bridges, streets and ways used historically. The identifier is unique and links directly to further information, with a map and a REST API available: to query the data. This would allow us to link hundreds / thousands of such identifiers with very well curated source material and further information. These could also be used in the bridges infoboxes on multiple Wikipedia projects. Hannes Röst (talk) 16:11, 9 June 2020 (UTC)
