Lemma 76.40.3. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of algebraic spaces over $S$. Assume $f$ separated, of finite type, and $Y$ Noetherian. Then there exists a dense open subspace $U \subset X$ and a commutative diagram

\[ \xymatrix{ & U \ar[ld] \ar[d] \ar[rd] \ar[rrd] \\ X \ar[rd] & X' \ar[l] \ar[d] \ar[r] & Z' \ar[ld] \ar[r] & Z \ar[ld] \\ & Y & \mathbf{P}^ n_ Y \ar[l] } \]

where the arrows with source $U$ are open immersions, $X' \to X$ is a $U$-admissible blowup, $X' \to Z'$ is an open immersion, $Z' \to Y$ is a proper and representable morphism of algebraic spaces. More precisely, $Z' \to Z$ is a $U$-admissible blowup and $Z \to \mathbf{P}^ n_ Y$ is a closed immersion.

Proof. By Limits of Spaces, Lemma 70.13.3 there exists a dense open subspace $U \subset X$ and an immersion $U \to \mathbf{A}^ n_ Y$ over $Y$. Composing with the open immersion $\mathbf{A}^ n_ Y \to \mathbf{P}^ n_ Y$ we obtain a situation as in Lemma 76.40.2 and the result follows. $\square$
