QGIS Multi Ring Buffer Plugin Version 1

After about 3 years of existing. I am releasing version 1 of the Multi Ring Buffer Plugin.

QGIS plugin repository.

With version 1 comes a few new features:

  • Ability to choose the layer to buffer after launching the plugin
  • Ability to supply buffer distances as comma separated text string
  • Ability to make non-doughnut buffers
  • Doughnut buffer:

    Non-doughnut buffer (regular):

    Works either in a sequential manner by buffering the resulting buffer and differencing the previous buffer, or a central manner by buffering the original feature with different distances. Also by default the buffer dissolves the features before buffering.

    Dissolving makes adjacent features behave in a better manner without overlapping buffers. The QGIS buffer feature has the logic behind this.
