The useful error message is this one:

"CMake Error at /opt/ros/indigo/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:75 (find_package): Could not find a package configuration file provided by "visuaization_msgs" with any of the following names: visuaization_msgsConfig.cmake visuaization_msgs-config.cmake "

(emphasis mine)

You have a typo in visualization_msgs, most likely somewhere in your CMakeLists.txt file.

The ROS workspace structure is a little confusing at first, but you will get used to it! Here is a nice diagram showing the different levels: workspace, packages, source code, hope it helps. As you correctly found out, you must call catkin_make from the root of your workspace.
