I am working on a draft of a paper and I have large figure that does not fit into 1 page. I can split the figure into two, but I wonder what is the appropriate way of doing it.
Two ways that I consider:
Split the figure but pretend it is one large figure. That is page 1 would have headings first half of the figure and page 2 would not have headings but caption underneath.
Have the figure posted as two separate figures with both having separate headings and caption (would this make sense given I would essentially repeat the headings and captions?).
Is one of the two methods above more appropriate? Or is there a different way? Also, are there any good examples of published paper dealing with this problem?
