Is it possible to pan around a virtual screen using a smaller touchscreen display

I am assuming that it is a limitation that a stylus cannot map it position
to a physical screen and a larger virtual screen at the same time.  I
currently have panning in the virtual screen but calibration is way off on
the physical screen.  I am assuming no mathematical wizardry with the
current setting can rectify this.
