Create multiple buffer rings around a features/set of features. Creates “doughnut” ring buffers, not including the buffered feature, or regular buffers.
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.
