[Tex/LaTex] How to place a multicolumn figure above a single column figure and a single column table


I would like to place the following on the same page:

  • A double column figure
  • A single column figure
  • A single column table

I want the placement to look something like this:

You can set a multitude of things inside a floating environment. Below I've created a single figure* floating environment for capturing the wide (two-column) figure. However, just below it (inside the same float), I've set a table and another figure inside minipages, making it seem like they are separate and columnar.

enter image description here

\usepackage{lipsum,capt-of,graphicx}% http://ctan.org/pkg/{lipsum,capt-of,graphicx}
\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}% Just for this example

  \caption{This is a figure caption}


      One & Two & Three \\
      Three & One & Two \\
      Two & Three & One \\
    \captionof{table}{This is a table caption}
    \captionof{figure}{This is a figure caption}


The placement of the figures will always be on top and on the page following the placement within your document text. capt-of helps out with the placement of float-like captions.
