Assembling a localic map f : L → M from localic maps f_{i} : S_{i} → M, i ∈ J, defined on closed resp. open sublocales (J finite in the closed case) follows the same rules as in the classical case. The corresponding classical facts immediately follow from the behavior of preimages but for obvious reasons such a proof cannot be imitated in the pointfree context. Instead, we present simple proofs based on categorical reasoning. There are some related aspects of localic preimages that are of interest, though. They are presented in the second half of the talk. Joint work with Ales Pultr (Prague).
