Lemma 67.34.4. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of algebraic spaces over $S$. Let $n \geq 0$. Assume $f$ is locally of finite type. The set

\[ W_ n = \{ x \in |X| \text{ such that the relative dimension of }f\text{ at } x \leq n\} \]

is open in $|X|$.

**Proof.**
Choose a diagram

\[ \xymatrix{ U \ar[r]_ h \ar[d]_ a & V \ar[d] \\ X \ar[r] & Y } \]

where $U$ and $V$ are schemes and the vertical arrows are surjective and étale, see Spaces, Lemma 65.11.6. By Morphisms, Lemma 29.28.4 the set $U_ n$ of points where $h$ has relative dimension $\leq n$ is open in $U$. By our definition of relative dimension for morphisms of algebraic spaces at points we see that $U_ n = a^{-1}(W_ n)$. The lemma follows by definition of the topology on $|X|$. $\square$
