Tidal Predictions App

The Tide Predictions shiny app is a webpage for visualizing and downloading tide height data.

The tide heights are calculated using the rtide R package.

Currently, predictions are available for 637 US stations. Unfortunately, Canadian stations are not available under an open license.

Stations can be selected by name or by clicking on a map.

When a station is selected, an window opens allowing the user to select the period, interval, and units (meters or feet). The data can be viewed as an interactive plot or table (which can be downloaded as a csv file).
