Lemma 86.24.6. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of formal algebraic spaces over $S$. The following are equivalent:

the morphism $f$ is locally of finite type,

there exists a commutative diagram

\[ \xymatrix{ U \ar[d] \ar[r] & V \ar[d] \\ X \ar[r] & Y } \]where $U$, $V$ are formal algebraic spaces, the vertical arrows are representable by algebraic spaces and étale, $U \to X$ is surjective, and $U \to V$ is locally of finite type,

for any commutative diagram

\[ \xymatrix{ U \ar[d] \ar[r] & V \ar[d] \\ X \ar[r] & Y } \]where $U$, $V$ are formal algebraic spaces and vertical arrows representable by algebraic spaces and étale, the morphism $U \to V$ is locally of finite type,

there exists a covering $\{ Y_ j \to Y\} $ as in Definition 86.11.1 and for each $j$ a covering $\{ X_{ji} \to Y_ j \times _ Y X\} $ as in Definition 86.11.1 such that $X_{ji} \to Y_ j$ is locally of finite type for each $j$ and $i$,

there exist a covering $\{ X_ i \to X\} $ as in Definition 86.11.1 and for each $i$ a factorization $X_ i \to Y_ i \to Y$ where $Y_ i$ is an affine formal algebraic space, $Y_ i \to Y$ is representable by algebraic spaces and étale, such that $X_ i \to Y_ i$ is locally of finite type, and
