We construct the moduli spaces of stable maps, Mg,n(pr, d), via geometric invariant theory (GIT). This construction is only valid over Spec C, but a special case is a GIT presentation of Mg,n, which is valid over any algebraically closed field. Our method follows that of Gieseker in [G] and Swinarski in [Sw2], though our proof that the semistable set is nonempty is different.
