### Abstract

The work investigates the powerlocales (lower, upper, Vietoris) of localic completions of generalized metric spaces. The main result is that all three are localic completions of generalized metric powerspaces, on the Kuratowski finite powerset. This is a constructive, localic version of spatial results of Bonsangue et al. and of Edalat and Heckmann. As applications, a localic completion is always overt, and is compact iff its generalized metric space is totally bounded. The representation is used to discuss closed intervals of the reals, with the localic Heine–Borel Theorem as a consequence. The work is constructive in the topos-valid sense.
