May be a KYTE DOOLITTLE HYDROPATHY PLOT will help solve your problem- if it is integrated to the tools you use for protein analysis/ visualization. However many are free to use and available through a divergent web servers:

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

and so on !

Calculate PSA(Percent solvent accessibility) values for the residues, It only works when you have structure of a protein. Otherwise(only sequence is available), then Trp and tyr are considered as hydrophobic, check for enrichment of charged and hydrophobic residues neighbouring these residues.

Hope this helps.
