Script to batch clip a shapefile of multiple buffers?

Question asked by penjie23 on Jun 6, 2017

Hi,

 

I'm working on a project for which buffers have been created around a line scheme. Each line has 100-200 buffers at different distances. However, I need each of the buffers to be clipped to the extent of those inside of it, so each buffer is a ring rather a solid polygon. Each of the lines in the scheme has these buffers, but because the lines meet at certain points, the buffers from different lines also intersect, However, I need buffers which are the result of different lines, to ignore each other in the clip. Does anyone know how this might be done, either by script or by the toolbox?

 

Thanks for any help
