I am buffering a layer of facilities (points). I will then use the buffer to clip and intersect another layer, containing resources.
I want to answer the question, how much of the resource lies within X distance of the facility?
Buffer facility -> clip resource so only areas within buffer remain -> intersect facility buffer and resource to show amount of resource within distance of facility.
Now, I am using ftools to create my buffer. The problem is, when the facilities are already within X distance of each other it does not create a full circular buffer, the polygons created do not overlap.
How can I create a buffer in QGIS where the polygons of the buffer are allowed to overlap each other (possible in ArcGIS)?
