Welcome to Towed Undulating Vehicles Data Analyzing Tools (TUVtools).

This is a R shiny Web application developed to conduct a near-real-time analysis for water quality data sampled from towed undulating vehicles such as TRIAXUS. The program will automatically interpolate the data, perform hotspot analysis and cluster analysis and then visualize the results in 2D and 3D.


Currently the application should be able to run in a local R shiny mode. We provide sample data from Manitowoc site to illustrate how to use the application.The example data can be downloaded here.
