I would like to add: legend (Red, blue and Green) and figure caption (with legend) for my Keviat plot. The code of my keviat is listed below. Thank you

Have you written intentionally Other, ? because the result is different with Other. –  Alain Matthes Apr 7 '13 at 7:25

Here's one possibility. If you want your object to be treated as a floating object, you can use the figure environment and then the standard \caption command to provide the caption (as I did in my first example code). If you don't want your diagram to float, you can use a minipage environment and the \captionof command integrated into the KOMA-Script classes, to provide the caption (as I did in my second example code).

To design the legend, you can use a \node and a tabular, at the desired position; of course you can change the settings according to your needs.

First, treating the diagram as a floating figure object:

\documentclass[]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[upright]{fourier}
\usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames]{xcolor}
\usepackage{tkz-kiviat,numprint,fullpage}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
\usetikzlibrary{arrows}

\pgfdeclarelayer{background}
\pgfdeclarelayer{foreground}
\pgfsetlayers{background,main,foreground}

\newcommand\ColorBox[1]{\textcolor{#1}{\rule{2ex}{2ex}}}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
\centering
\begin{tikzpicture}[label distance=.15cm,rotate=30,scale=0.75]

\tkzKiviatDiagram[radial=3,lattice=7,gap=1,step=1,label space=2]%
    {Cover,
    Droppings,
    Other,
    }
\tkzKiviatLine[thick,color=red,fill=red,label=SiteA](0.78,5.59,2.02);label{p4}
    \tkzKiviatLine[thick,color=blue,fill=blue](5.92,1.57,3.06);label{p5}
    \tkzKiviatLine[thick,color=green,fill=green](2.9,4.6,3.6);label{p6}
    \tkzKiviatGrad[suffix=\%,unity=10](0)
\node[anchor=south west,xshift=-60pt,yshift=40pt] at (current bounding box.south east) 
{
\begin{tabular}{@{}lp{3cm}@{}}
\ColorBox{red!50} & red description \\
\ColorBox{green!50} & green description \\
\ColorBox{blue!50} & blue description \\
\end{tabular}
};
\end{tikzpicture}
\caption{A caption for the diagram}
\label{fig:test}
\end{figure}

\end{document} 

enter image description here

And without flotation:

\documentclass[]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[upright]{fourier}
\usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames]{xcolor}
\usepackage{tkz-kiviat,numprint,fullpage}
\usepackage{capt-of}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
\usetikzlibrary{arrows}

\pgfdeclarelayer{background}
\pgfdeclarelayer{foreground}
\pgfsetlayers{background,main,foreground}

\newcommand\ColorBox[1]{\textcolor{#1}{\rule{2ex}{2ex}}}

\begin{document}

\noindent\begin{minipage}{\linewidth}
\centering
\begin{tikzpicture}[label distance=.15cm,rotate=30,scale=0.75]

\tkzKiviatDiagram[radial=3,lattice=7,gap=1,step=1,label space=2]%
    {Cover,
    Droppings,
    Other,
    }
\tkzKiviatLine[thick,color=red,fill=red,label=SiteA](0.78,5.59,2.02);label{p4}
    \tkzKiviatLine[thick,color=blue,fill=blue](5.92,1.57,3.06);label{p5}
    \tkzKiviatLine[thick,color=green,fill=green](2.9,4.6,3.6);label{p6}
    \tkzKiviatGrad[suffix=\%,unity=10](0)
\node at (current bounding box.east) 
{
\begin{tabular}{@{}ll@{}}
\ColorBox{red} & red description \\
\ColorBox{green} & green description \\
\ColorBox{blue} & blue description \\
\end{tabular}
};
\end{tikzpicture}
\captionof{figure}{A caption for the diagram}
\label{fig:test}
\end{minipage}

\end{document}

In the standard classes book, report, article, the \captionof command is accessible through one of the packages capt-of or caption.

Since \captionof is integrated into KOMA-Script, too, there is no need to load the capt-of package here. –  Axel Sommerfeldt Apr 7 '13 at 6:46
    
@AxelSommerfeldt true! I'll edit right now. Thank you. –  Gonzalo Medina Apr 7 '13 at 6:52

With PSTricks.

There is nothing to avoid code like !5 12 pt2cm add -5 12 pt2cm add it's not very funny for the user. Something to get the separation of presentation and content. –  Alain Matthes Apr 7 '13 at 8:47

The simplest method with tikz :

First I defined a point (LegendBox_anchor), it's an anchor for the legend's box. Then I used a line to show the color used for a tkzKiviatDiagram Line. The different lines are placed with (LegendBox_anchor). The description is a simple node add at the end of the line. anchor=west is used to align correctly the descriptions

\coordinate[xshift=-2cm] (LegendBox_anchor) at (current bounding box.south east) ;
\draw[line width=3mm,color=red] (LegendBox_anchor) -- ++(.5,0) node[anchor=west] {red description};
\draw[line width=3mm,color=blue] ([yshift=8mm]LegendBox_anchor) -- ++(.5,0) node[anchor=west] {blue description};
\draw[line width=3mm,color=green] ([yshift=16mm]LegendBox_anchor) -- ++(.5,0) node[anchor=west] {green description};

It's possible instead of lines to use rectangles or nodes. The nodes have several advantages to get some refinements but I tried to create something easy to use.

Another possibility is define a box around the different description. I can if you add this possibility later.

Now it's perhaps interesting to add a macro to the package to get legends. Here I added a simple macro ( first try to extend the package )

\newcommand{\LegendBox}[3][]{%
\coordinate[#1] (LegendBox_anchor) at (#2) ;
    \foreach \col/\item [count=\hi from 0] in {#3} {
    \draw[line width=3mm,color=\col] ([yshift=\hi*8mm]LegendBox_anchor) -- ++(.5,0) 
                                    node[anchor=west] {\item}
                                    ;}
}

It's based on the first lines. Argument #1 is used to get a better position of the legend box if it's necessary.

\documentclass[]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[upright]{fourier}

\pgfsetlayers{background,main,foreground}

\newcommand{\LegendBox}[3][]{%
\coordinate[#1] (LegendBox_anchor) at (#2) ;
    \foreach \col/\item [count=\hi from 0] in {#3} {
    \draw[line width=3mm,color=\col] ([yshift=\hi*8mm]LegendBox_anchor) -- ++(.5,0) 
                                    node[anchor=west] {\item}
                                    ;}
}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}[label distance=.15cm,scale=0.75]
\begin{scope}[rotate=30]
    \tkzKiviatDiagram[radial=3,lattice=7,gap=1,step=1,label space=2]%
        {Cover,
        Droppings,
        Other,}
        \tkzKiviatLine[thick,color=red,fill=red,label=SiteA](0.78,5.59,2.02)
        \tkzKiviatLine[thick,color=blue,fill=blue](5.92,1.57,3.06)

\end{tikzpicture}

remark : you don't need to add ; at the end of \tkzKiviatLine

Update :

I added a box around the legends, removed some ; I used nodes instead of lines

    \foreach \col/\item [count=\hi from 0] in {#3} {

             minimum width  = 4 ex,
             minimum height = 2 ex,
             label={[anchor = left,name=b\hi]right:\item}] at ([yshift=\hi*4 ex]LegendBox_anchor) {};
             \xdef\fitbox{\fitbox(b\hi)}
