Is there some kind of wall AI identification system in google maps or some google earth software to find a wall nearest my location to play squash during quarantine?

Such a program certainly could be designed, but there would be liability problems for whoever produced and distributed such a program. It would give users the impression that they have permission to use properties to play squash, while the property owners had not granted that permission.
Probably the best way is to use google or bing maps to find likely properties, then use street view to confirm that they have a suitable wall. Bing Maps has a feature called "birds eye view" which can be useful for seeing things from different angles. And no, it's not AI or automated in any way, unless you program it yourself. I would approach it as though you were going to program such an AI, but then just do the search manually. Start with a list of clearly defined search parameters, such as:
Once you have your list of parameters, think of what sort of locations might meet those parameters. Look up nearby ones on google maps, then scout out the property from street view. Some possible building types that come to mind:
Decide whether to ask permission in advance, or ask forgiveness afterwards. If you're playing against a free-standing wall, you may get away without asking permission (although asking permission would still be the safest course). If you're playing against the wall of a building you almost certainly need permission. Many buildings nowadays have security cameras, some of which can be monitored remotely even if the building is unoccupied. And playing squash will make some noise and be rather attention-catching if you are visible from the street or nearby windows. So the odds of "getting away with it" without permission are low. Getting caught could mean just being asked to leave, or it could have more serious consequences such as an encounter with the police, a fine, criminal charges, etc. If you're looking at a commercial property like a strip mall, contact the building manager rather than one of the retailers. For a school try the principal or superintendent.
