I am creating multiple ring buffers around polygon areas of interests. Due to their proximity, some of these are overlapping. I would like to dissolve them into joined features.
I have tried dissolve using the buffer distance as dissolve field, but it does not quite get the result I am after:
I would like to keep the inner area on top working towards the outside if that makes sense to get a clean polygon.
I found the below for ArcGIS, but am after a solution in QGIS, if anyone has thoughts?
