I'm building a system that tries to answer geospatial English questions such as "Where is the closest restaurant" or "How many historic sites are in the east of Nantes?". Underlying database is OSM. To improve my system I need more English questions. Does anyone know of any place/logs etc. where I might find such a collection of questions?

  • This is unhelpful, but you might try googling/researching NLP (natural language processing)-- that's the "term of art" for this sort of thing.
