The relative version of a locally compact topological space is a continuous map that behaves like a ‘family of locally compact spaces’.
A continuous function $f \colon X \to Y$ is called locally proper if for any $x \in X$ and neighbourhood $V \ni x$ there is a neighbourhood $A\ni x$ with $A \subset V$ and a neighbourhood $U \ni f(x)$ such that $A \to U$ is a proper map.
The inclusion map of a locally closed subset $C\hookrightarrow X$ in a topological space $X$ is locally proper.
A topological space $X$ is a locally compact space if and only if $X\to \ast$ is locally proper.
Let $f\colon X\to Y$ and $g\colon Y\to Z$ be locally proper. Then $g\circ f$ is locally proper. If $W\to Y$ is any continuous function then $W\times_Y Z \to W$ is locally proper. (ie locally proper maps are closed under composition and stable under pullback. Hence they form a singleton coverage)
As a corollary, one has that for a locally compact space $X$, every locally closed subspace of $X$ is locally compact.
Let $f\colon X\to Y$ be a continuous function. Then if
or
then $f$ is locally proper. The converse implications also hold
Recall that a continuous map $g\colon Y \to Z$ of topological spaces is called separated if $Y\to Y\times_Z Y$ is a closed embedding.
If $f\colon X\to Y$ and $g\colon Y\to Z$ are continuous maps, $g$ is separated and $g\circ f$ is locally proper, then $f$ is locally proper
Every continuous map from a locally compact Hausdorff space to a Hausdorff space is separated and locally proper.
The following proposition generalises the well-known result that compact Hausdorff spaces are locally compact.
Every separated and proper map is locally proper
The proper base change theorem also holds for locally proper maps if one uses direct image with compact support instead of ordinary direct image
