Abstract: Motivated by the Chapman Complement Theorem, we construct an isomorphism between the topological category of compact Z-sets in the Hilbert cube $ Q$ and the $ C_{0}$-coarse category of their complements. The $ C_{0}$-coarse morphisms are, in this particular case, intrinsically related to uniformly continuous proper maps. Using that fact we are able to relate in a natural way some of the topological invariants of Z-sets to the geometry of their complements.
