I am currently writing my master's thesis, which contains a lot of equations and figures referred to in the text of the report. I use Latex for my writing thus making it easy to refer to the figure/equation numbers, but it is also possible to refer to the page on which the figure/equation is to be found. For instance I might have some text on page 34 saying:
... which is shown in figure 2.1 on page 5.
or with shorter distance (page-wise):
... as seen in figure 3.2 on the following page.
My question is whether this is useful to the reader. Is there any consensus about how/when to refer to the pages? Is it better not to do it?
