Hello Daniel. 

There's a statistical package named R, from 

that has pretty much everything related to statistics and data analysis. 
Kiviat diagrams, also known as star plots, or web plots etc., are among its 
abilities -- directly or using packages like 'rela' or 'homals', all 
available from the Comprehensive R Archive Network, or cran, at

Its many abilities can be easily used in Python through the rpy package, that 
is available from 

All the best,
