I have a layer of very 3 x 3 m square polygons. I would like to rasterize just the border of the squares, so the interior cells just have 'nodata' values, and you can see layers below it. When I process this with rasterize in QGIS, the whole square comes out black. Any way to do this?

  2. Buffer the lines.

  3. Rasterize the buffer.
