The followng is by Dennis Shea (NCAR):

Taylor diagrams provide "a concise statistical summary of how well patterns match each other in terms of their correlation, their root-mean-square difference and the ratio of their variances."  Additional information such as percent bias can be added to the conventional Taylor diagram (see below).  

The Taylor diagram provides a graphical framework that allows a suite of variables from a variety of (say) one or more models or reanalyses to be compared to reference data. The reference data can be observationally based (eg, reanalysis) or to another model or a control run. All variables must be on the same grid so regridding may be necessary.

The official reference is Taylor, K. E. (2001), Summarizing multiple aspects of model performance in a single diagram, J. Geophys. Res., 106(D7), 7183–7192,

Karl Taylor provides an excellent simple description of the diagram and how to interpret the plotted points at The primer contains a link to a large suite of Taylor diagram examples.
