  • Publication number: 20190310755
    Abstract: In a coordinate correction apparatus, a coordinate acquisition unit sequentially acquires coordinates of touch positions on a touch panel when a touch operation is continued on the touch panel. When the coordinate acquisition unit acquires first coordinates which are coordinates of a new touch position, a coordinate correction unit calculates a weighted average of the first coordinates and second coordinates determined from coordinates of a past touch position acquired by the coordinate acquisition unit, with applying weighting that varies according to a touch movement amount on the touch panel. The coordinate correction unit outputs a calculation result as corrected coordinates. An application unit uses the corrected coordinates.
