# How to reference the page of a figure?

Is it possible to make a reference to the page where a figure is rendered?

I would like to write something like

see figure~\ref{figure-xyz} on page NN


where NN will automatically be maintained by LaTeX. The figure that prompted my question is almost a page so it may be floated further in the doc.

I suppose it's possible, after all the figure-to-page mapping is generated by \listoffigures.

see figure~\ref{figure-xyz} on page~\pageref{figure-XYZ}


Also see the varioref package which lets you write see figure~\vref{figure-xyz} which will automatically add the "on page NN" iff the figure is not on the current page.

Excellent, thank you. I didn't know about the varioref package, it's very handy. – wishihadabettername Aug 23 '10 at 2:47
Note: according to variosref documentation, you do not need to add unbreakable space ~ before \vref. Any ordinary space will be converted into an unbreakable space. – Ricardo Cruz May 16 '15 at 12:12

Just use \pageref{}, so in your case:

see figure \ref{figure-xyz} on page \pageref{figure-xyz}

Please do not omit the ~. Without it, it could happen, that figure is placed at the end of the line and the number \ref{} at the beginning of the next line. ~ inserts an unbreakable space so that the number can't be divided from figure which is good typography. Same for ~\cite etc. – Kurt Sep 4 '12 at 23:31
@Kurt I didn't know that, thanks! – Vivi Sep 5 '12 at 3:57
