7.3 Sideways Floats

The rotating package provides the sidewaysfigure environment:

\begin{sidewaysfigure}

and the sidewaystable environment:

\begin{sidewaystable}

which are like figure and table, respectively, but rotate the entire float (including caption) sideways. This sideways float is always placed on a page of its own.

If you have used the twoside class option (or you are using a class like scrbook, which defaults to that option) then the sideways floats will be rotated clockwise or anti-clockwise, depending on whether they fall on an even (verso) or odd (recto) numbered page. (Requires a second LaTeX run to get it correct.)

Example:

\begin{sidewaysfigure}
 \centering
 \includegraphics[width=0.75\textheight]{shapes}
 \caption{A Sideways Figure}
 \label{fig:sideways}
\end{sidewaysfigure}

The above code produces Figure 7.4.
