In the era of diversification of cargo freight facilities, application of advanced geo-modelling and geo-design tools is an imperative. Particularly, in the case of the new construction or re-developments of large port terminals, its infrastructure and facilities. The main objective of this paper is to demonstrate the importance of bathymetric survey as one of the contemporary tools utilised in the pre-construction phase of port terminals. Contemporary bathymetry provides complex digital modelling and determines the depth, morphology and sedimentology of the river, lake, dam or sea beds. When planning, designing and constructing port terminals, bathymetric surveys are the primary prerequisite, before any physical intervention or material excavation. In order to generate a precise digital model of the sea-bed morphology in its initial and final stage, and calculate the quantity of the excavated material (in m³), our research team used geo-statistic and deterministic interpolation models. Particular emphasis was placed on the Newton-Cotes model affecting the output result (excavated material volume).
