I want to have a landscape figure with the same portrait page geometry as the rest of the document. Additionally, I want only that page to be displayed in landscape in the PDF and the figure to float correctly.

This has very nearly been answered by: Answer 1 and Answer 2.

I am currently using a sidewaysfigure environment. This works perfectly i.e., the resulting PDF document prints exactly as required; also the figure floats correctly. However, I would like the page which the figure is on to display in landscape when the PDF is viewed electronically.

I have tried using an afterpage environment as:

            FIGURE HERE
}% end afterpage

However, this breaks the floating of the figure.
