Abstract: It is shown that the functor given by maps from a given compact analytic space $X$ into elements of a category $C$ of analytic spaces is representable by a compact element of $C$ if and only if $C$ is closed under finite products and the taking of compact subspaces. Various specific choices are considered. Of special interest is the category of compact hyperbolic spaces which gives rise to a birational invariant when applied to projective manifolds.
