I'm looking at plant biomass values in 2m intervals (center to 30m) around several waypoints. I've extracted the zonal stats as a table, however each of the buffers also includes the smaller increment buffer values (i.e the 8-10m interval also includes the center-8m values). Is there any way to create multiple annulus around each point so that I'm isolating the values per interval and not the total? Using ArcMap/GIS 10.3.1.
The Multiple Ring Buffer Tool is what you are looking for. Make sure dissolve all is on.
