I am developing a plugin in QGIS using PyQt5. I have used the following code to create a buffer of different distance for different features in a layer.
layers = [layer for layer in QgsProject.instance().mapLayers().values()] drainIndex = self.dlg.comboBox_4.currentIndex() drain = layers[drainIndex] path=os.path.dirname(unicode(drain.dataProvider().dataSourceUri())) crs=drain.crs() outLayer = QgsVectorLayer(path,'Buffer1',"ogr") out=os.path.join(path,'Buffer1.shp') prov = outLayer.dataProvider() outLayer.startEditing() for feat in drain.getFeatures(): inAttr = feat.attributes() # Input attributes inGeom = feat.geometry() # Input geometry Segments=20 bf_inGeom = inGeom.buffer(feat['B1'], Segments) poly=bf_inGeom.asPolygon() outGeom = QgsFeature() outGeom.setGeometry(QgsGeometry.fromPolygonXY(poly)) # Output geometry outGeom.setAttributes(inAttr) # Output attributes prov.addFeatures([outGeom]) QgsVectorFileWriter.writeAsVectorFormat(outLayer,out,'utf-8',destCRS=crs,driverName='ESRI Shapefile') outLayer.commitChanges()
It is generating buffer correctly around the polygon, which is an input. But also it gives some extra features which are the buffers on the input polygon.
Therefore it is giving double features than expected. One is the buffer outside input polygon and another is buffer on the input polygon. It is shown on the image given below.
As shown on the picture green coloured polygon is an input file. Red lines are buffers. I want buffer which is outside of input file.
What changes are recommended in the code?
