What is the difference between a "map frame" and a "layer" in Surfer?

The map frame is the entire map in Surfer, and is composed of all the axes and all the layers. You can see this in the Contents window. It is called Map by default. The layers are the individual layers that you use to display your data. The layers can be a map type (e.g. Contours, Post, Base), or they can be a graticule layer.

 

A map frame includes the axes and all the layers. You can see the map components in the Contents window.
